    Where are the 64-bit versions of Java?

    807603
      I tried to download the 64-bit version of JDK 5 off this site - but didn't find it. I've heard of 64-bit versions - where are they? I want a 16G heap, and the 32-bit version limits me to 1640M.

          They're on the download page with all the other JDK's...

            So its easier to afford a 16 slot motherboard and all the 1 gig sticks to fill it than to locate a file on the internet.
            I'll tell you where it is, just write your name and email address on the back of a TYAN S4881G2NR Quad Socket 940 NVIDIA nForce Professional 2200 + AMD 8131 SSI MEB v3.5 footprint Server Motherboard with 16 1G sticks of DDR400 memory in it and send it to P.O. Box 666, Main Post Office, Abuja, Nigeria.

              No, they are not on the download page. There is only 1 version for Linux.

              Here is the page:

              https://sdlc4a.sun.com/ECom/EComActionServlet;jsessionid=75899081099DE709E2BC60EB4E409104

              Here is how you get to it:

              java.sun.com
              Click on Java SE
              Click on JDK 5.0 Update 9 with NetBeans 5.5
              Click on JDK 5.0 Update 9 with NetBeans IDE 5.5 Bundle

                Click on JDK 5.0 Update 9 with NetBeans IDE 5.5 Bundle
                I did finally find it - no thanks to the snide responders above. After you click on Java SE from the first page, instead of clicking on any of the links offering downloads, you must click on "Supported System Configurations". The 64-bit downloads are available from that page, but not from the pages you get by looking for downloads.

                  Not so. For example, click on the "download" button next to "JDK 5.0 Update 9". Scroll down.

                  Linux x64 Platform - J2SE(TM) Development Kit 5.0 Update 9

                  That's just an example.

                    It's also not the only example. By going to java.sun.com -> downloads -> Java SE -> JDK 5 Update 9 there's also 64 bit versions for Solaris and Windows.

                      1 version for Linux.
                      You didn't scroll to the bottom of the screen, did you?
