One of the open source web crawlers (Heritrix) requires Java to run. I have to install this on my CENTOS via the command line (aptitude). How?

  • Quick note: The standard package manager for CentOS is YUM. Aptitude is a package manager for Debian and Ubuntu Linux or more generally, DEB-based Linux distributions, in contrast to RPM-based distributions like CentOS. – joschi Oct 8 '09 at 21:11

Here is a list of good HOWTOs for Java on Centos.

BTW, CentOS' package manager is called yum. It generally works like aptitude, like

yum search $packagename
yum install $packagename
yum remove $packagename
yum check-update
yum upgrade
