Install JDK

Installing the Java Development Kit

First of all, you should download a Java development kit (JDK), containing the Java virtual machine (JVM) and other resources for developing Java applications. Since LITIENGINE has been created with Java 8, you need at least JDK 8 on your machine.

The official Oracle JDK has seen some severe licensing changes in 2019, requiring a paid license for developing commercial applications!

Here is a short overview over some entirely free JDK distributions:

nameimplementations
AdoptOpenJDKJDK 8, JDK 11, JDK 15
Amazon CorretoJDK 8, JDK 11, JDK 15
Oracle Open JDKJDK 15
Red Hat OpenJDKJDK 8, JDK 11, JDK 15
