Posted by The Jerusalem Times on Thursday, October 15, 2017 08:28:02 JDK 7 and JDK 8 are the two major releases of the Java virtual machine, and while the latter contains a bunch of new features, the former is mostly focused on security updates.
Here’s how to install the latest versions of the two Java virtual machines on your Windows 8 or 8.1 machine, using the same installation methods that you’d use to install Java on your Mac or Linux machine.
First, install the Java Runtime Environment (JRE).
This software is a package for Windows and macOS and is available from Microsoft and other online retailers.
Open the JRE installation folder.
Next, open the JCE installation folder on your computer.
You can also launch the JME, JRE Web Installer, or JRE installer program from a command prompt.
Next open a command window, such as Control Panel, or System, or Start, and select Java as the installation option.
You’ll see a pop-up menu, select Java, and then click Install.
If the JSE installation option is selected, Java will automatically download the J7, J8, and J9 libraries and dependencies and install them.
The installer will ask you if you’d like to continue.
If you don’t, click Cancel.
You will be prompted to select a directory, and you can choose either the current directory or a directory that will be the default installation directory for the installation.
Once you’re done, click Finish.
Next up, you’ll need to install Oracle Java SE (Java SE Embedded).
Open the Oracle Java Installer application.
It will install Oracle JDK, Oracle JDJ, Oracle JRE, Oracle SE, and Oracle Web Installers.
It also contains the Oracle JAX-RS and Oracle JCP web interfaces.
If there’s a Java SE Embedding component included with the JDK or JDJ package, the installation will install the component.
Next you’ll want to download the JDVM, which is an operating system-level Java runtime and the JVM, and install it.
Open a command shell.
For the JD VM, type the following: javac -version This will output the version of Java installed, along with a list of commands that can be used to upgrade to a new version of the software.
Next click Finish and you’ll be presented with a prompt to reboot your computer and start Java.
If your computer is already running Oracle Java, Java SE, or Java Web Install, it will automatically reboot your machine and start up again.
If it isn’t running Java SE or Java JRE at all, you can install them yourself.
Once Java starts up, open a menu and select Tools.
Click on the Install Java button to install a new Java version.
If that fails, check the Install all Java checkbox.
Next follow the instructions in the Install JDK and JRE windows installer to install each of the new Java versions.
You may also be prompted for the location where you want to store the new JDKs or JJREs.
If not, click Continue.
Next the JDV package will be installed, and a dialog box will appear asking you to choose where to store it.
The default location is the Downloads directory.
Next select a language for the installer.
For this tutorial, we’ll use Java.
Click Finish and Java will start up.
You should see the Java installer window appear.
Click Install next.
When Java is finished, you should be presented a screen that displays the JDM and JDQM libraries and resources.
Select Java to continue, and when Java is installed, the dialog box that appears will ask if you want Java to download and install the JMX components, which contain the Java runtime, JMX servers, and the JDBC driver.
If this doesn’t work, try running Java again to verify the installation is complete.
Next we’ll install the Oracle Web Server, which provides the Java EE runtime and Web frameworks.
Click Start to start the installation of Oracle Web Services.
This will install Java EE and the Oracle EE component.
You don’t have to choose any of the default installations for Oracle Web, but it will install and use the most recent versions.
Next to Oracle Web services, click the Java tab to select the Java Virtual Machine.
Oracle will install it on the same machine that you installed Java, which will be your default installation location.
You’re now ready to install additional Java packages.
To install a Java package, click on the Add button and select the appropriate Java package from the list.
This is your new Java installation.
Next on your Java installation, you may want to install an additional Oracle Java package.
You’ve already installed the JDJ and JDJSE components, so you can now install Oracle JSR, which contains the Java Server Pages component and the Java Data Language component.
To do so, open up the Oracle Installer or Java Installers menu, and
