Installing Java for ALM
Question ID: 109521

question about ALM install: In the upgrade of our Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) application to version 12.6, we need to install Java. Do you know how other customers handled this? Did they just create an Oracle account, download Java, and installed Java on their production Windows server? Is there a cost associated with downloading Java?

You have two options when installing java. You can use Oracle Java JDK or you can use OpenJDK. For the Oracle version you will need to read the license agreement to see if there is a fee associated with installing it. The OpenJDK which is contributed to by Oracle is open source and free. OpenJDK is the the version of java that is installed on most free Linux distributions by default.
