Outdated: Installing JRockit JVM 7.0

This section provides a tutorial example on how to download and install JRockit 7.0 on Windows systems.

To try JRockit, I went to http://dev2dev.bea.com/products/product.jsp?highlight=jrockit. Then registered myself, by following the registration process. On the download page, I selected BEA WebLogic JRockit for Microsoft Windows 2000 SP2 with J2SE 1.4.0. At the end of download process, I got jrockit-7.0-j2se1.4.0-win32.msi (22,809,600 bytes).

The installation process was straight forward by double clicking on the downloaded file. At the end, JRockit was installed at \program files\jrockit\7.0\1.4.0.

To check the installation, I did the following in a command window:

\progra~1\jrockit\7.0\1.4.0\bin\java -version
java version "1.4.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0)
BEA Weblogic JRockit(R) Virtual Machine (build 7.0-1.4.0-win32-GARAK-200
20830-1714, Native Threads, Generational Concurrent Garbage Collector)
