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



The file is automatically unpacked and its contents are placed inside a newly created directory named jre1.6.0_XX. From this point advanced users will know what to do with it.
