This article shows you how to install Java on Mac OSX, and also how to do Java/JDK version switching.
Java version 8.1 free download - Windows 8.1, Apple Mac OS Update 8.1, Cisco VPN Client Fix for Windows 8.1 and 10, and many more programs. The goal of this Project was to produce an open-source reference implementation of the Java SE 8 Platform Specification defined by JSR 337 in the Java Community Process. Production-ready binary distributions based on the JDK 8 code base are available now from Oracle and will be available soon in most Linux distributions.
- Mac OS 10.15.3
- JDK 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 (AdoptOpenJDK)
On Mac OSX, Java should installed in this folder; it is Mac’s standard.
We will show you two ways to install Java JDK on Mac, via the popular Homebrew package manager and manually installation.
1.1 Install Homebrew and update it.
1.2 Add adoptopenjdk/openjdk.
1.3 Find all available JDK.
The output may vary.
1.4 Java 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, choose one to install.
This example will install Java 8 and 11 for testing.
1.5 Where Java is installed?
Homebrew will install the JDK at folder
/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/, and this folder is Mac’s standard folder for Java installs.
1.6 Test it, by default, Mac takes the highest version.
1.7 How to do version switching? Refer to below 3. version switching
2. Manual installation
The example shows you how to download the early access JDK 14 and install it on Mac OSX.
Mac Install Java 8
- Download JDK.
- Puts the JDK folder at
2.1 Download the early access JDK 14 from the OpenJDK website.
2.2 Extracts tar file to
Find out where is JDK 14.
Create or edit the existing
~/.bash_profile with a text editor.
JAVA_HOME, save and exit.
Reflect the changes
2.4 Test it.
3. Version Switching
In this tutorial, we installed the Java 8 and Java 11 via
Homebrew (Step 1), and Java 14 manually (Step 2), so this Mac has three versions now. And the Mac is using the JDK 14.
There are tools like jEnv to manage the Java version switching, but I prefer to manage with
export JAVA_HOME manually, it’s simple and easy to understand, no black box magic.
3.1 Create or edit the existing
~/.bash_profile with a text editor like vim or nano,
export JAVA_HOME to the specified JDK we want to use on Mac.
The above changes will make
JAVA_HOME point to JAVA 8.
3.2 Reflect the changes.
If we want to switch JDK version again, update the
export JAVA_HOME to other JDK version.

This page describes how to install and uninstall JDK 8 for OS X computers.
This page has these topics:
See 'JDK 8 and JRE 8 Installation Start Here' for general information about installing JDK 8 and JRE 8.
See 'OS X Platform Install FAQ' for general information about installing JDK 8 on OS X.
Java Version 8 Download For Mac
Observe the following requirements:
Any Intel-based computer running OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) or later.
Note that installing the JDK on OS X is performed on a system wide basis, for all users, and administrator privileges are required. You cannot install Java for a single user.
Installing the JDK also installs the JRE. The one exception is that the system will not replace the current JRE with a lower version. To install a lower version of the JRE, first uninstall the current version as described in 'Uninstalling the JRE'.
JDK Installation Instructions
When you install the Java Development Kit (JDK), the associated Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is installed at the same time. The JavaFX SDK and Runtime are also installed and integrated into the standard JDK directory structure.
Depending on your processor, the downloaded file has one of the following names:
version is 6 or later.
Download the file.
Before the file can be downloaded, you must accept the license agreement.
From either the Downloads window of the browser, or from the file browser, double click the
.dmgfile to launch it.
A Finder window appears containing an icon of an open box and the name of the
Double click the package icon to launch the Install app.
The Install app displays the Introduction window.
Note:In some cases, a Destination Select window appears. This is a bug, as there is only one option available. If you see this window, select Install for all users of this computer to enable the Continue button.
The Installation Type window appears.
It’s an exciting game that puts WWII tanks at your command.This game has more than six hundred mid-twentieth century tanks. This means that you can lead legendary tanks such as the Sherman, Tiger, T-34, or Churchill. Not only that, but there are also loads of maps where you can put your expertise to the test commanding these war machines.Thanks to the system of upgrades in World of Tanks, you can try loads of different types of tanks and weapons during the game. There are five different vehicle classes: light tanks, medium tanks, heavy tanks, tank destroyers, and self-propelled guns.
A window appears that says 'Installer is trying to install new software. Type your password to allow this.'
Enter the Administrator login and password and click Install Software.
The software is installed and a confirmation window appears.

After the software is installed, delete the
.dmgfile if you want to save disk space.
Determining the Default Version of the JDK
If you have not yet installed Apple's Java OS X 2012-006 update, then you are still using a version of Apple Java 6 that includes the plug-in and the Java Preferences app. See 'Note for Users of OS X that Include Apple Java 6 Plug-in'.
There can be multiple JDKs installed on a system, as many as you wish.
When launching a Java application through the command line, the system uses the default JDK. It is possible for the version of the JRE to be different than the version of the JDK.
You can determine which version of the JDK is the default by typing
java -version in a Terminal window. If the installed version is 8u6, you will see a string that includes the text 1.8.0_06. For example:
To run a different version of Java, either specify the full path, or use the
For more information, see the java_home(1) man page.
Uninstalling the JDK
To uninstall the JDK, you must have Administrator privileges and execute the remove command either as root or by using the sudo(8) tool.
For example, to uninstall 8u6:
Mac Java 1.8
Do not attempt to uninstall Java by removing the Java tools from
/usr/bin. This directory is part of the system software and any changes will be reset by Apple the next time you perform an update of the OS.
