Java Windows 8 Install
Java is available from Oracle and runs on a large number of computers.
As I am often working with several different versions of Java, I use a folder to store them. I create C:\Java\ and change the install location during the install. I will then rename the old generic installation (jdk1.8.0 or jdk1.8.0-x64 to say jdk1.8.0_20-ea-b20 or jdk.8.0-x64_45-b15). I then copy the new installation into the appropiate a generic folder (jdk1.8.0 or jdk1.8.0-x64) and uninstall the original. This makes it easier to create generic scripts to run the software and to check against older versions.
