Jdk 1.4.2 is an older version of the Java Development Kit that is compatible with the AIX operating system. It allows you to develop and run Java applications on AIX platforms. If you need to use Jdk 1.4.2 for AIX, you can follow these steps to download and install it:
Go to the IBM Java SDK on AIX page here.
Scroll down to the section \"Earlier releases\" and click on the link \"Version 6\".
On the next page, select the appropriate platform and architecture for your AIX system.
Click on the link \"Download package\" under the column \"Base image\".
You will be prompted to sign in with your IBM ID or create one if you don't have one.
After signing in, you will see a list of files to download. You need to download both the JRE and SDK files that match your platform and architecture.
For example, if you are using AIX 7.1 on a 64-bit system, you need to download the files Java6_64.jre.tar.gz and Java6_64.sdk.tar.gz.
Save the files to a temporary directory on your AIX system.
Extract the files using the command tar -xzf filename.tar.gz, where filename is the name of each file.
This will create two directories: jre and sdk.
Move or copy these directories to a permanent location, such as /usr/java14_64.
Set the environment variables JAVA_HOME and PATH to point to the JRE and SDK directories.
For example, you can add these lines to your .profile file:
Verify that Jdk 1.4.2 is installed correctly by running the command java -version. You should see something like this:
java version \"1.4.2\"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build pap6460-20080818_01(SR11))

Congratulations! You have successfully installed Jdk 1.4.2 for AIX.
Jdk 1.4.2 for AIX is an older version of the Java Development Kit that was released in 2004. It supports the Java 2 Platform Standard Edition (J2SE) 1.4.2 application programming interfaces (APIs). It includes a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and a Java Software Development Kit (SDK) that contain the IBM Java virtual machine and the Java class libraries.
Jdk 1.4.2 for AIX has some features that are specific to the AIX operating system, such as:
Support for large page sizes and memory affinity.
Support for AIX performance monitoring tools, such as trace and tprof.
Support for AIX security features, such as encrypted user passwords and Kerberos authentication.
Support for AIX native threads and synchronization primitives.
Support for AIX file systems, such as JFS and JFS2.
Jdk 1.4.2 for AIX is compatible with the minimum AIX operating system levels of 5.1, 5.2, and 5.3. It is also compatible with the IBM Power processor architectures of POWER3, POWER4, POWER5, and POWER6. However, Jdk 1.4.2 for AIX is no longer supported by IBM and has reached its end of service date. Therefore, it is recommended to upgrade to a newer version of the Java Development Kit that is supported by IBM and has more features and security enhancements. a474f39169
