Even if your system already has Java installed, you might want to create a separate Java installation for use by the PingDirectory Server so that updates to the system-wide Java installation do not impact the Directory Server.
PingDirectory Server requires Java. For optimized performance, use Java for 64-bit architectures. View the minimum required Java version on your Customer Support Center portal, or contact your authorized support provider for the latest software versions supported.
A separate Java installation requires that you download the Java Development Kit (JDK) instead of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) for the 64-bit version.
- Go to the Oracle download site.
- Click JDK Download.
- On the download page, select the download file for your operating system and accept the license agreement to start the download.
