The Java Development Kit (JDKTM) lets you write applets and applications that conform to the Java Core API.Note: Before you use the JDK, please read the Copyright and License Information.
Proceed the following instructions for downloading:
- Click on the link for downloading JDK.
- Scroll to the blue labeled Header "Download J2SE v 1.4.2_03"
- Click on the 'Download' button in the column SDK of the line "32-bit/64-bit for Windows/Linux/Solaris SPARC 32-bit for Solaris x86 "
- Click on the radiobutton 'Accept'
- Click on button 'Continue' to accept the License Agreement
- Click on 'Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language (j2sdk-1_4_2_03-windows-i586-p.exe, 48.30'
- Optional is downloading the 'Installation Instructions'
- Start the installer by double clicking the file 'j2sdk-1_4_2_03-windows-i586-p.exe' on your local Hard Disk http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html
Very important: To be able to use it with TextPad, the Java SDK must be installed using its setup program. This writes information to the registry, which TextPad cannot work without. So, first install Java on your Hard Disk., and than TextPad.
Proceed the following instructions to download Textpad:
- Click on the link 'http://www.textpad.com/download/'
- Click on the Text 'TextPad Downloads'
- Choice your favourite language and click on a corresponding 'HTTP (USA 1)' hypertexttext
- Save the file 'txpned472.exe' on your local Hard Disk
- Double click on 'txpned472.exe' to install it on your local Hard Disk. http://www.textpad.com/download/
Customize Textpad after installation on your Hard DiskBefore you start the compiler command in TextPad to generate a class file you have to tell the compiler to generate a version 1.1 class file to solve any problems with some browser plugins. Add commands to compile (and run Java applications and applets) to TextPad's Tools menu as follows:
- Open TextPad
- From the Configure(Configureren in dutch) menu, choose Preferences (Instellingen)
- Select the Tools (Extra's) page on the Preferences dialog box
- Click Add
- Select "Java SDK commands" from the drop down menu.
- Click OK
Modify the parameters of the Compile Java command:
- Click on Tools/Compile Java
- Type in the Parameters' textbox the '$File -target 1.1' (without quotes & one space between $File and -target & one space between -target and 1.1 )
- Click on Apply en OK
- 1. The option to add Java SDK commands only appears on that menu, if none of your tools runs JAVAC.EXE, JAVA.EXE or APPLETVIEWER.EXE
- 2. The Java SDK commands are automatically added to the Tools menu, if the Java SDK is installed before TextPad is first run on a PC
- 3. Do not attempt to capture the output of a Java application which reads from standard input. The Command Results window is output only, so you will not be able to type responses into it
