Hi I need help installing JDK so I can use Netbeans. When I try and install Netbeans with POL it says missing JDK. Please Help
You can download and install the Java SDK which comes bundled with NetBeans as a package from here so that you can install both at once.
Take note that there is also a Linux version here. So you can install JDK with NetBeans directly onto Linux without having to install it through PlayOnLinux. I would suggest trying out the Linux version before trying to install it on POL.
Download the latest JDK from here:
You can also use this script to download it automatically.
Then install it by extracting the package which you can do by double clicking on the file and selecting extract from the menu. You may also want to add these lines to your
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/jdk1.8.0_91 export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/jre/bin:$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
Oracle Java is better considering performance and compatibility compared to other implementations of JDK.
