My previous post about installing Java on OS X received quite a bit of traffic, and I felt that some of the information was outdated, and it became a little unclear after all the edits, so I’ve endeavoured to create a much easier to understand set of instructions.
The instructions for installing the JDK (Java Development Kit) are a subset of the instructions for installing just the JRE, because Oracle provides an installer for the JDK.
This page is your source to download or update your existing Java Runtime Environment (JRE, Java Runtime), also known as the Java plug-in (plugin), Java Virtual Machine (JVM, VM, and Java VM). Put your orders, update his status, add items, tracking number, easy control and the most important, see how much you are you going to pay or take a best decision before to pay or see your orders that you did.

After adding tap, let’s install OpenJDK using brew. $ brew cask install adoptopenjdk8. So, now we have installed Java 8, we can check installation with the following command. Check JDK Version.

- Go to the Oracle Java downloads page and download the JDK installer. You should end up with a file named something similar to
jdk-8u60-macosx-x64.dmg, but perhaps a newer version.
- Open the
.dmgDisk Image and run the installer.
- Edit the JDK’s newly installed
Info.plistfile to enable the included JRE to be used from the the command line, and from bundled applications:
The third line fixes a permissions issue create by using
defaults write. The fourth line is not required, but makes the file more user-friendly if you open it again in a text editor.
- Create a link to add backwards compatibility for some applications made for older Java versions:
- Optional: If you’re actually using the JDK for software development, you may want to set the
JAVA_HOMEenvironment variable. The recommended way is to use
/usr/libexec/java_homeprogram, so I recommend setting
.bash_profilelike Jared suggests:
This will get the latest installed Java’s home directory by default, but check out
man java_homefor ways to easily get other Java home directories.
You should be done now, so try and open the application. If it does not work, some applications require legacy Java 6 to be installed. You can have it installed without actually using it, however, it’s possible to trick the applications into thinking legacy Java 6 is installed, without actually doing so.
If you’re running El Capitan, this is actually a little difficult now, because Apple added SIP (System Integrity Protection) to OS X. I have written a post explaining how to disable and enable SIP.
If you’ve disabled SIP, or are not running El Capitan yet, you can trick some applications into thinking legacy Java 6 is installed by creating two folders with the following commands in
Don’t forget to enable SIP again after creating these directories.
