I wanted to learn java so I figured the first step would obviously be to install java on my computer. I was wondering how to download java on my computer. Do I need to download the JRE only? How to jre6 download for Windows 7 32 bit?
Jre6 Download For Windows 7 32 Bit
Okay, so a few things. First, you need to have both the JRE (Java Runtime Environment) and the JVM (Java Virtual Machine) to run and compile Java on your computer. So, to answer your first question, it is better that you install the complete Java JDK (Java Development Kit) instead of just the JRE.
As for JRE 6, let me inform you that JRE 6 is no longer the latest version of Java available for Windows. However, the latest version, Java 9 does not support Windows 32-bit. Thus, you need to install the latest version that supports a 32-bit operating system that is Java 8. You can download it from the official Java website from Oracle.
