Damn, Java confuses the hell out of me.
Not the language itself since I don’t do any actual Java programming, but getting the environment set up. I thought I had things set up correctly with the JRE, which took for damn ever mind you. But then one of the apps I’m testing actually needs the JDK. It sounds simple enough until you go looking for the right file to install because you need a specific build number. I guess I’m just not familiar with how Java does their version numbering because I got all manner of confused.
After going around in circles I finally turned to the dev guys and had them point me in the right direction. I have the JRE and the JDK installed, but it still doesn’t make any sense to me. I’m used to seeing something like 1.6.0 or something like that. Those Java kids, they gotta be all different and stuff.
Now let’s see what crashes.
