Looking at CPAN requirements, it says to install the following: Java Virtual Machine compatible with JDK 1.4 A JDBC driver If I install the the java JDK - would that satisfy all of these requirements? The Java Virtual Machine & the JDBC driver?

    There's two requirements and you need to install them separately. The base JDK you get from Oracle (or openjdk, although I'm not familiar with how/if that works on wintendo . . .); the JDBC driver is probably something you'd need to retrieve from your specific database vendor / implementation (although there's exceptions such as the sqlite3 driver that's a separate project).

      The CPAN site is stating that the JDK download should be compatible with 1.4 - it looks like there are newer versions of the JDK now like 1.7 & 1.8. Would there be an issues with downloading a newer JDK version in the interest of using it for Perl DBD::JDBC purposes?
