As you see in the above output, these commands display the list of available JDK versions. Just type the number of your choice.

Here, I chose the number: 47.

Install java jdk arch linux

During installation, you will be asked to enter the password for the administrative account. Enter the password and wait for few moments to complete the installation.

After the installation is over, check the java version using the command:

java -version

Sample Output:

[ashwin@archlinux ~]$ java -version
openjdk version "9"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 9+181)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 9+181, mixed mode)

As you see in the above output, Oracle Java has been installed.

You can check where is Java using the command below:

whereis java

Sample Output:

[ashwin@archlinux ~]$ whereis java
java: /usr/bin/java /usr/lib/java /usr/share/java /usr/lib/jvm/java-9-openjdk/bin/java
