Java SE Installation for ORMB

Installing software into a directory that include spaces in the path name (e.g. C:\Program Files\) might cause issues for some vendor applications.


To install the Java SE JDK 1.8 as a prerequisite for deploying ORMB

Download Java

Download required JDK 1.8 binary (  jdk-8u112-windows-x64.exe )  here.

Install Java

It is strongly advised to choose an installation directory that does not include spaces in the path name (e.g., do NOT install in C:\Program Files\). Some software will throw exceptions that depend on the value of JAVA_HOME, which either includes a space,or defines as “C:\Progra~1\”. 

  • Run  jdk-8u112-windows-x64.exe.
  • Change the installation directory to a path with no spaces in it, such as D:\jdk1.8.
  • All other installation defaults are accepted.
  • When the installer gets to the stage of installing the J2SE Runtime Environment, it is fine to accept the default, e.g., C:\Program Files\Java.
  • Add Java’s bin directory (e.g.,  D:\jdk1.8\bin) to your PATH environment.
  • Set JAVA_HOME (  e.g., D:\jdk1.8 ).
