Installing JDK and PHP Java bridge

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

Please read about Installing Software and Repositories, and note the warnings and advice about installing and configuring the yum priorities plugin.

The references in those articles should show you how to query the yum database for distro packages. For instance

Code: Select all

# yum list java\*
Loaded plugins: changelog, fastestmirror, priorities, refresh-packagekit
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * elrepo:
5 packages excluded due to repository priority protections
Installed Packages
java-1.5.0-gcj.x86_64                         @sl/6.0
java-1.5.0-gcj-devel.x86_64                   @sl/6.0
java-1.6.0-openjdk.x86_64              1:      @updates
java-1.6.0-openjdk-demo.x86_64         1:      @updates
java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel.x86_64        1:      @updates
java-1.6.0-openjdk-javadoc.x86_64      1:      @updates
java-1.6.0-openjdk-src.x86_64          1:      @updates
java_cup.x86_64                        1:0.10k-5.el6                    @sl/6.0
Available Packages
java-1.5.0-gcj-javadoc.x86_64                 base   
java-1.5.0-gcj-src.x86_64                     base   
java_cup-javadoc.x86_64                1:0.10k-5.el6                    base   
java_cup-manual.x86_64                 1:0.10k-5.el6                    base   
javacc.x86_64                          4.1-0.5.el6                      base   
javacc-demo.x86_64                     4.1-0.5.el6                      base   
javacc-manual.x86_64                   4.1-0.5.el6                      base   
javassist.noarch                       3.9.0-6.el6                      base   
javassist-javadoc.noarch               3.9.0-6.el6                      base   

So for a start

Code: Select all

yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk

I don't know anything about PHP Java bridge and a yum search for that is not helpful:

Code: Select all

# yum --noplugins --showduplicates --enablerepo \* --disablerepo c6-media,\*debug\*,\*-source search php java bridge
============================ N/S Matched: php, java ============================
php-pear-HTML_Javascript-1.1.1-4.el6.noarch : Class for creating simple JS
                                            : scripts

========================== N/S Matched: java, bridge ===========================
eclipse-mylyn-java-3.4.2-9.el6.x86_64 : Mylyn Bridge:  Java Development
orbited-0.7.10-6.el6.noarch : A browser(javascript)->tcp bridge

=============================== N/S Matched: php ===============================
collectd-php-collection-5.0.1-1.el6.rft.x86_64 : collect php webfrontent
... snip ...

Do note that 6.0 is seriously obsolete. The current release is 6.2. A "yum update" is highly recommended. By not updating you are implicitly accepting that you will live with numerous bugs and security issues (and associated known exploits) that have subsequently been fixed.
