So you r going to update, follow the steps after download new jre package and after installation is successful , check if jre 1.4 is still there:
swlist -l product |grep -i jre

if it is there then remove that, in some packages older version overrided but in some package you need to do manually as far as I experienced.

Hi Mahe,

I beleive you can directly install 1.6 in the server. But some pre-requisits are there.

Please see https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=HPUXJDKJRE60

Also kindly download and install the documentation from the below url. This should have the installation steps.

You can have 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6 all at the same time.

>Viveki: This should have the installation steps.

This just has documentation installation info but not how to install a JRE on HP-UX.

it's true, you can have multiple jre versions running side by side. interesting because some applications need version x, other version y and so on. have multiple versions available at the same time solved this.
