Then, should I install 32 or 64 bit Java?
Strictly speaking, on a 32-bit CPU architecture machine, you should install 32-bit java/JRE. On the other hand, on a 64-bit CPU architecture machine, you are free to choose between 32-bit java/JRE and 64-bit java/JRE. Both will work just fine. Mainly because of the memory layout in 64-bit architecture.
Subsequently, question is, what is the latest Java version? The latest version of Java is Java 12 or JDK 12 released on March, 19th 2019 (Follow this article to check Java version on your computer). From the first version released in 1996 to the latest version 12 released in 2019, the Java platform has been actively being developed for about nearly 24 years.
Similarly one may ask, how can I tell if my Java version is 32 or 64 bit?
- Go to the command prompt.
- Type "java -version" and press enter.
- If you are running Java 64-bit the output should include "64-Bit"
How do I know if Java is installed?
