I have a need to maintain different versions of a certain product written in java, and uses sun's jdk to build. Some older versions of the product need an older jdk (1.5) and the newer ones need jdk 1.6. So, my question is how can I install (and maintain) multiple versions of sun's jdk. I don't want openjdk, icedtea or whatever else, but different versions of sun's jdk itself.
I ask this as I've seen I have the commands
python2.6 accessible. If I install another python version, I get it as
python2.7 although the
python command doesn't point to it. This is exactly the kind of setup I need with java. But anything close also works.
