    Question Ubuntu 11.10 and Open JDK

    I am going to install Pentaho Community on Ubuntu 11.10. Since 11.10 has OpenJDK, can I use that? Or, do I have to have sun-java6-jdk?

    Will appreciate if you can share your experience with installing Pentaho on Ubuntu 11.10.

    I have a test machine with OpenJDK and a production machine with Sun JDK (both CentOS).
    I have tons of (connection) problems with MySQL on the test machine; production with Sun JDK works flawlessly, both same PDI 4.2.1 zipfile.

    I'm just saying ....

    Thanks for sharing. This is going to be my test machine too, but better safe than sorry. Also, I would like to keep it same as production. I will uninstall OpenJDK and get Sun JDK instead. Appreciate your help.

    OpenJDK, tends to have strange outcomes...I would suggest using Sun Java for that...


    sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/java
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-plugin
