Comment: Minor note about using JDK over JRE.


Setup Package Java

Download Oracle's JRE JDK (Java Runtime EnvironmentDevelopment Kit) and follow the Manual Java Setup Instructions for Windows or Manual Java Setup Instructions for Linux.


  • Windows = C:\apps\sts-2.8.0.RELEASE\jdk1.6.0_26
  • Linux or Unix = /opt/apps/sts-2.8.0.RELEASE/jdk1.6.0_26

For development, I choose JDK over JRE as you can actually trace the source of the JDK.

Point STS to Java

Modify the STS.ini to point to your JRE with by adding -vm and a reference to Java.
