    I usually just drop it into a separate directory and then path to it.

    /usr/java/current/bin etc...


    Then the apps that come with Solaris still find the version that they were written for and anything else finds the new version.

    /usr/java is almost always a link to the latest Java installed. And I believe if you download the Java SE 6 JDK x86 packages ( and install them, it will update /usr/java to the newly-installed JDK. If not, simply run these three commands <b>after</b> installing the above JDK packages:

    cd /usr
    rm java
    ln -s ./jdk/jdk1.6.0_27 java
