  3. Remove bundled jvm

    rm -rf /usr/local/obm/jvm

  4. Download J2SE Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.4.x or later

    Depending on your platform and BSD release, download the corresponding JRE and dependant packages.
    For example, we are using FreeBSD 6.1 i386 for installation:

    Download javavmwrapper-2.3.tbz and diablo-jre-freebsd5.i386.1.5.0.07.01.tbz in the following links.

    https://www.freebsd-fr.org/ports/java.html#javavmwrapper-2.3
    https://www.freebsdfoundation.org/downloads/java.shtml
    https://www.freebsd.org/ports/java.html#diablo-jre-1.5.0.07.01_3  (See package dependancy of your machine)

  5. Install J2SE Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.4.x or later to /usr/local/diablo-jre1.5.0

    Use following command to install package
    pkg_add javavmwrapper-2.3.tbz
    pkg_add diablo-jre-freebsd5.i386.1.5.0.07.01.tbz

  6. Create a symbolic link for JRE

    ln -s /usr/local/diablo-jre1.5.0 /usr/local/obm/jvm

    If you are using csh as your shell, you need to type "rehash" and hit enter to make the symbolic link take effect. For other shell types it should work.

    setenv JAVA_HOME /usr/local/obm/jvm

  7. Verify the installed JRE

    $JAVA_HOME/bin/java -version

    See if the output does not contain warning

    With warning
