Management Console for Unix 2.5.2 requires Java 8 (that is, Java SE 8, Java Platform Standard Edition 8). Before you run the Management Console for Unix installer, ensure that a suitable implementation of Java 8 is installed.
The 32-bit implementation should only be used for small installations of Management Console for Unix; for most installations, the 64-bit implementation of Java 8 and Management Console for Unix is preferable.
Any configuration of Java 8 — the JRE, the JDK, or the Server JRE — can be used. The Server JRE is ideal but is only available for some platforms. The JRE is sufficient. The JDK, a superset of the JRE that adds tools for Java development, is also more than sufficient.
On Unix/Linux, your operating system may provide Java 8, either already installed or available as packages that can be downloaded and installed.
Providers of Java 8 implementations for Windows and for Unix/Linux include:
Oracle, newest release:
Oracle, older Java 8 releases:
Azul Systems' OpenJDK builds:
JDK 8 may also be referred to as JDK 1.8 or JDK 1.8.0. Updates (patch releases) are numbered, and an update such as 181 may be referred to as either JDK 8u181 or JDK 1.8.0_181. The same is true for the JRE. IBM has its own release process and its own numbering scheme.
To stay abreast of Java 8 security fixes, whenever possible the most recent Java 8 update should be used.
