    It's something like this:

    /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.3/Home

    but that's probably not verbatim.

    Unfortunately, the directories do not match the common layout of a jdk directory on Windows or other *nixes. Oh well.

    whereis

    If you need to find something, the 'whereis' command can help.

    whereis java

    will find the java executable, which ought to lead you to the rest of the JDK.

    Naturally, the moment you heard of a new *nix command, you opened up a Terminal window and typed

    man whereis

    Of course. "apropos" is also helpful, it can search through the descriptions of commands. Unfortunately, it also searches through the descriptions of the C library functions, which is annoying.

    Cheers,

    Unfortunately 'whereis java' points to /usr/bin.

    ls

    ls -l should (I think) show the target of links. There's also an alias called 'll'
