7To run JOSM, you need:
8
9* josm-beta.jar
10* The latest Java Runtime Environment 1.5.

14How to get Java
15---------------
16
17You need at least Version 1.5 (called Java5 or "Tiger").
18
19Microsoft Windows people should just visit java.sun.com and
20download the latest Java5 executable.
21
22To get Java under linux, I recommend downloading the environment
23directly from Sun at http://java.sun.com. There is a linux
24binary installer which you have to execute from a java console.
25
26However, if you run Debian or Ubuntu or any other dpkg-based
27distribution, you may use unofficial precompiled packages.
28You have to add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list
29(replace "stable" with your installation)
30
31http://ftp.debian-unofficial.org/debian/ stable non-free
32
33The package is called sun-j2se5.0-jdk-binary.
34
35For MacOS user: There is an installer for Mac OS X 10.4:

39How to launch
40-------------
41
42Microsoft Windows people launch by double clicking on josm-beta.jar.
43If this does not help, open a command shell and type
44"java -jar josm-beta.jar" in the directory that holds the file.
45
46Under Linux open a shell, go to the file directory and type
47"java -jar josm-beta.jar" to launch. If this don't help, try to set
48you JAVA_HOME variable to the java location (the root location, not
49the bin. "/usr/lib/sun-j2se5.0-jdk" if you used the prebuild
50package).
51
52MacOS people just click on the jar-file.
