1 Installation of Jindent

Generally Jindent is shipped with a native installer. Therefore you have to download the Jindent package which is suitable for your operating system.

Jindent is available as:

Since Jindent is written in pure Java it needs at Java Runtime Environment 1.4.2 or later for a proper execution.
For that reason the most packages are available with a bundled JRE which will be installed together with Jindent.

If at least the Java Runtime Environment 1.4.2 is already installed on your operating system then you can download the package without any bundled JDK.
