This module cannot guarantee installation of Java versions that are not available on platform repositories.

This module only manages a singular installation of Java, meaning it is not possible to manage e.g. OpenJDK 7 and Oracle Java 8 in parallel on the same system.

Oracle Java packages are not included in Debian 7 and Ubuntu 12.04/14.04 repositories. To install Java on those systems, you'll need to package Oracle JDK/JRE, and then the module can install the package. For more information on how to package Oracle JDK/JRE, see the Debian wiki.

This module is officially supported for the following Java versions and platforms:

OpenJDK is supported on:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5, 6, 7
  • CentOS 5, 6, 7
  • Debian 6, 7
  • Ubuntu 12.04, 14.04, 16.04

Sun Java is supported on:

  • Debian 6

Oracle Java is supported on:

  • CentOS 6
