View Full Version : [ubuntu] installing multiple jdk in ubuntu 11.10

April 30th, 2012, 02:01 PM
Hi guys,
I am starting mobile apps development using java. I have successful set netbeans IDE. I want to be able to use Sun Wireless Toolkit (WTK 2.5.2) emulator to test my applications. However when I test run my apps the emulator isn't started, and a thorough search on the internet indicated that, WTK I am using is targeted for JRE 32 while the one I have in my system is 64 bit version. The only remedy suggested was to install the jdk 32 bit version and point WTK to that version. Now my question is how do I install 32 bit version of jdk while at the same time keeping the 64 bit one.

Below are specs:-
1. Intel Core i3
2. Ubuntu 11.10 desktop operation system.
3. my jdk installation path (64 bit version) /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk

Thanks in advance guys.
