1.1.2. Java 2 Software Development Kit

The Java 2 Software Development Kit (J2SDK), version 1.5 or higher is required to run BMFO. Earlier Java versions will also work but require a recompilation of the bmfo_report.war web application archive.

J2SDK is available from http://java.sun.com. The download page is http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.html.

Select the link Download JDK 5.0 Update 5 and follow the instructions.

Run the J2SDK installer (jdk-1_5_0_05-windows-i586-p.exe).
