Installation of JAP (Linux/Unix)

JAP is a Java application, so you will need a Java Runtime Environment supporting at least Java version 1.1.8. It is strongly recommended to use Java version 1.4 or above since JAP sometimes doesn't work together faultlessly with older versions of Java. Follow the steps below to check out which version of Java is already installed on your system.

  1. Launch a command console.
  2. Type in java -version and press return.
  3. If the message command not found appears try the command jre and press return.

If you get a message containing the Java version then proceed with the appropriate step below.

Please select from the following list:



Stable Version
