    classid or clsid for JRE/JDK

      Hi everybody

      I need to get classid or clsid for JRE/JDK 1.6.0_23
      Does JRE & JDK have same classid?

      I know that classid for 1.4.2_06 is CAFEEFAC-0014-0002-0006-ABCDEFFEDCBA

      Can someone help me?

      Thanks in advance

          Your question is not exactly clear. " +Does JRE & JDK have same classid?+ " The JRE or Java Runtime Environment has a related CLSID recorded in the Windows Registry so that requests from other applications can call out to the JRE and generally start a jave app. The JDK or Java Development Kit is a set of development tools used to create java applications. You can't "run" the kit. The JDK does include an optional JRE, but you must ensure that you select the option to install it during the installation prompts. This JRE would essentially be the same as if you just installed a stand-alone JRE

          How to derive the CLSID number is explained here:



          JRE 1.6.0_23 would be: CAFEEFAC-<font color="red"><b>0016</b></font>-<font color="red"><b>0000</b></font>-<font color="red"><b>0023</b></font>-ABCDEFFEDCBA
