How to obtain older versions of Sun Java – JDK or J2SDK or J2SE


Many have asked me how to obtain the older versions of Sun’s Java Development kits and runtimes. Here is the archive of all the older versions of Sun’s Java installations and runtimes.

Sun Java – Older JDK,J2SDK,J2SE Archive link

One might wonder why these older versions are needed, most developers use older versions of JDK , J2SDK for sake of compatibility with respect to servers. For instance any IBM WAS server running version 6 will need J2SDK 1.4.2 update 9 . And most Development teams all over the world are still using J2SE 1.5 versions of JDK and JRE.
