Installing Java 1.4.1_03-b02

Installing the latest Java SDK on a Sun box and wanted to note the order of package installs is important to a smooth install.

1) Remove any existing Java packages which are installed in /usr/j2se (the default Solaris install is OK to leave there at /usr/java1.2)
2) Install the four packages in this order: sudo pkgadd -d . SUNWj3rt SUNWj3dev SUNWj3man SUNWj3dmo
3) Add the 64-bit packages in this order: sudo pkgadd -d . SUNWj3rtx SUNWj3dvx SUNWj3dmx

Sun documentation has more details.
