Java Runtime Environment makes available extra functionality for certain programs, e.g. OpenOffice

Javascript has nothing to do with Java Runtime Environment

Most users will not need Java Runtime Environment.

J.R.E. software package(s)

Absolutely no warranty given or implied; use entirely at your own risk

Program installs to /mnt/home/java (which is outside any existing pupsave file). This means that for frugal Puppy installations a Java installation is only retained when a pupsave file has already been created first. A pupsave file is created during the procedure of re-booting/shutting down for the very first time following a new Puppy installation.
For those on dial-up it is recommended to use the wget command, by entering into a terminal either of these two commands (file is downloaded to /mnt/home):
wget -t0 --retry-connrefused -c -N -S --wait=2 --random-wait --no-dns-cache --prefer-family=IPv6 --directory-prefix=/mnt/home --no-cache --no-cookies

wget -t0 --retry-connrefused -c -N -S --wait=2 --random-wait --no-dns-cache --prefer-family=IPv6 --directory-prefix=/mnt/home --no-cache --no-cookies


Download J.R.E. from Select the “Linux (self-extracting file)” not the one with RPM in the name. Open a Rox-Filer window of the directory containing the downloaded file. Right-click on the file and select Permissions and Yes to make the file executable. Right-click and select Window > Terminal Here, and enter (XX=version number)

Scroll down with the Enter key to accept the license agreement and then the install program will create a directory named something like jre-1.6.0_XX.
