I'm new to the PortableApps forums but I have been using the website (and apps) for ages.
I don't know whether this has been posted before (or if this is even the right section ) but I wanted to share how you can very easily make an Eclipse portable app with the JDK.
Don't worry, I won't post a download link (that's technically illegal :D).
There are two ways:
1: Get a friend to get the JDK on his/her computer, copy over the files.
2: (The way we'll be doing) Get the compressed binaries direct from Oracle.
Here's how to do it:
- Go get 7zip portable from here. (If you don't know what to do with this file, you probably shouldn't be reading this.)
- It's time to get the JDK! Unfortunatly, Oracle don't offer the Windows compressed binaries so we'll have to go the long way round. Go to the JDK download page before reading and accepting the JDK license agreement. Which file should we download? Get the LINUX .TAR.GZ file for your system (x86 for 32bit, x64 for 64bit. Find that out here.).
- Open up the .tar.gz and extract it to your Eclipse Portable\Data\Java. Then go in to your bin and change the file extension of all the files except java-rmi.cgi to .exe.
That's it! You've got Portable JDK.
