This section outlines how to download and install OpenJDK.

There are many OpenJDK binary distributions. For example, Azul, AdoptOpenJDK, Amazon, BellSoft, IBM, SAP, and Red Hat. The recommended download source is AdoptOpenJDK, a community of Java User Group members, Java developers and vendors (including GoDaddy, IBM, jClarity, Microsoft, Pivotal and Red Hat).


  1. Go to and download Version OpenJDK 11 with HotSpot as the JVM. 
  • The version of Java used for this binary is built directly from the OpenJDK source code repositories.  This version does not update automatically. You must manually run an update to ensure the latest version is installed.
  1. Select the OpenJDK installer to run it. 
  1. Select Yes at the prompt to update the JAVA_HOME environment variable.
