Installing Java so that you can run Swat and Vdbench
By Henk Vandenbergh-Oracle on May 26, 2011
"Vdbench and Swat require JAVA to run. Is there any way around this? They would not let me load Java for fear it would change how the system was running."
There is no need to install Java in system directories and/or replace an existing version of Java. You can install Java in, and then run it from, your own private directories.
