~**Java Runtime Environment** runs programs written in [[Java]]. Not to be confused with [[JavaScript]].

~~[[ jre1.7.0_65_5.7.0.sfs]], [[ more info]]
~~[[ ASRI Éducation repository]], [[ thread at the ASRI Éducation Forum (in French language)]]
~Alternatively, use script to make package:

~Packages may also be available in the official repository for your Puppy either through the Puppy Package Manager or the SlickPet/QuickPet app.
