|Hi Experts, I need to install multiple versions of Java on my Gentoo server. I have copied the .jdk.tar.gz file for both Java 1.7 and Java 1. 8 under the directory /usr/portage/distfiles.
When I do emerge --ask jdk, it gives me the below o/p :-
Gauss Softwares # emerge --ask jdk
* IMPORTANT: 6 news items need reading for repository 'gentoo'.
* Use eselect news to read news items.
These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild NS ~] virtual/jdk-1.8.0 [1.6.0-r2]
Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No]
It just shows me jdk-1.8.0.
When I do 'java-config -L', i see :-
Gauss Softwares # java-config -L
The following VMs are available for generation-2:
1) IcedTea JDK 188.8.131.52 [icedtea-bin-6]
*) Oracle JDK 184.108.40.206 [oracle-jdk-bin-1.8]
How can I install both jdk-bin.1.8 and 1.7 ? Please help me.
Appreciate all your help in advance.
