The Oracle, formerly known as Sun, Java framework is used to run Java-based applications on your computer. The full Java installation requires administrative privileges to run and exists as a systemwide setting. Although this is the ideal installation form, it is not always possible to acquire administrative rights on the machine you wish to run a Java program or applet on. You can install Java with only a user-based permission scheme providing you use the limited-rights installation available from the website. This version of Java will only work on your user account but does not require additional permissions to install.
