Java is a programing language created and managed by Oracle and Sun microsystems. Java is one of the widely used programming languages by developers. In order to start developing apps on your computer, you need to configure it with Java. The Java runtime environment is required in order to run java applications but for app development, the entire JDK (Java development kit) will be needed. The latest version of JDK released by Oracle is the JDK 7 for developers and ever since Oracle owned Sun Micro Systems, this is the first major update. Although it took a long time to be released, it came alongside a big improvement in features and bugs present in the previous versions were also fixed.
The JDK offline installer is a compacted JDK that can be downloaded as one file and installed when the computer is not connected to the internet (offline). This JDK is usually of large size and when it is run, the computer will extract the setup file’s content then install Java from the from the extracted contents. During installation process, you can choose which components of the JDK to be installed on your computer. Alternatively, it is also possible to install all the components in the JDK. It is important to take note of the directory where the JDK has been installed on the computer since this directory is the Java home directory. The documentation should be copied to the home directory. After unzipping the documentation file, there should be a sub folder named docs in the home directory. Navigate to the JDK folder in your computer and there should be a folder called docs. This is the Javadoc directory.
