Linux OpenJDK8 Installation (Since Oracle has Begun Its Final Chapter of Enslavement)

 

 

How to download and install prebuilt OpenJDK packages

JDK 9 & Later

Oracle's OpenJDK JDK binaries for Windows, macOS, and Linux are available on release-specific pages of jdk.java.net as .tar.gz or .zip archives.

As an example, the archives for JDK 11 may be found on jdk.java.net/11 and may be extracted on the command line using

$ tar xvf openjdk-11*_bin.tar.gz

or

$ unzip openjdk-11*_bin.zip

depending on the archive type.

JDK 8

Debian, Ubuntu, etc.

On the command line, type:

$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre

The openjdk-8-jre package contains just the Java Runtime Environment. If you want to develop Java programs then please install the openjdk-8-jdk package.

Fedora, Oracle Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, etc.

On the command line, type:

$ su -c "yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk"

The java-1.8.0-openjdk package contains just the Java Runtime Environment. If you want to develop Java programs then install the java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel package.
