System Requirements

  • Hardware :
    • Intel x64 (Dual-core i5 minimum) or macOS AArch64 (M1) processor
    • 4GB RAM (minimum)
    • 2GB Disk (minimum)
  • Operating Systems :
    • Windows 10, Windows 8.1 or Windows 8
    • Linux distributions (tested on Ubuntu 18.04, 20.04 and 22.04) - As of SDK Distribution 20.10 (based on Eclipse 2020-06), Ubuntu 16.04 is not supported.
    • macOS with Intel chip (tested on version 10.13 High Sierra, 10.14 Mojave)
    • macOS with AArch64 (M1) chip (tested on version 12.0.1 Monterey), from SDK Distribution 22.06
  • Java Runtime Environment :

The compatible JRE/JDK version depends on the Distribution, the SDK and the Architecture version. This table lists the supported combinations:

Distribution SDK Architecture JRE/JDK
22.06 >= 5.6.0 >= 7.17.0 JDK 11
<= 21.11 >= 5.6.0 >= 7.17.0 JRE or JDK 8 or 11
<= 21.11 < 5.6.0 * JRE or JDK 8
<= 21.11 * < 7.17.0 JRE or JDK 8

The combinations not listed here are not supported. For the supported combinations, tests have been done with both the Oracle and the Eclipse Adoptium JDK builds.

Warning

It is important to note that the SDK Distribution 22.06 requires a JDK 11 (not a JRE) and can be used only with an Architecture 7.17.0 or more.

Warning

When installing the AdoptOpenJDK build on Windows, the option JavaSoft (Oracle) registry keys must be enabled:

../_images/adoptopenjdk-install.png

Without this option, the SDK installer cannot find the JDK and the message The application requires a Java Runtime Environment 8 is displayed.
