Install Java 8 on Ubuntu

Recently Oracle has released JAVA 8, an important update that brings with it some improvements of the famous software platform, specifically:

  • Better performance in running Java 8 in modern multicore architectures.
  • Improvements in security management through an internal sandbox.

To install Java 8 on Ubuntu and derivatives

5 Minutes Enough!

The Web8UPD Team, in fact, has created a practical installer available in their Repository which makes the installation procedure very simple.

First we delete the old OpenJDK packages:

$ sudo apt-get purge openjdk *

Now we add the Web8UPD repository and install Java8 (confirm the various requests that will be shown on screen):

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa: webupd8team / java $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

And finally we verify that the installed Java version is the 1.8:

$ java -version
