Debian updating java

Posted by / 01-Nov-2020 02:12

Java is a platform-independent programming language / virtual machine.

In this tutorial, we will install the Open JDK implementation of Java 8 on a Debian 8 (Jessie) machine as well as the process of installing DCEVM (Dynamic Code Evolution VM) - an extension that allows unlimited runtime redefinition of classes with the help of Hotswap Agent.

In this article I will install Open JDK 8 (not headless), but I will show you how to install the Open JDK 8 headless version as well.

I checked java -version on my AWS Ubuntu 16 server and found I have 1.8.131, which is kind of old.

If I do an apt-cache policy for default-jdk or default-jre it shows it's not installed.

Please use Vultr firewall if you do decide to bind to an external IP address.

There's been a bit of talk about Java recently because of the 5.2.20 guest portal issue.
