Downloading JDK 1.4.2

by Dion Almaer

Have you downloaded the new jdk 1.4.2? Maybe I have forgotten, but I don't remember having to go through questionaires from Sun before I get to the download. Most of the checkboxes were unchecked, but one was sneakily on.
Just let me download a JDK! :)


I also first downloaded: J2SE v 1.4.2 with NetBeans IDE v 3.5 Cobundle by mistake (as it is the top set of links). Maybe I am wrong, but I think more users want to download it without NetBeans.


Well, it will be interesting to see if it really does perform so much better like Sun has claimed!

An option to bypass the questionaire...
The questionaire isn't mandatory.

Bundling NetBeans
This is clearly because Sun are bother by Eclipse. It's (in my opinion) a far better product than NetBeans, and it's a showcase for the SWT toolkit, which is a better alternative than Swing for writing most desktop apps.
