Install Java 9 for Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Debian via PPA


Are you a person who is interested to try new updates? Then it’s your time, Yes now you have Java 9 to try. It is normal to have updates in any sectors, Oracle also updates its Java version periodically. In that case today in this post i am going to list the steps that can help you to install Java 9 for Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Debian via PPA.

Download Java 9 from the official website.

But Java 9 is not yet free from bugs, if you need it obviously then you can download it.

 

STEPS TO INSTALL JAVA 9 FOR UBUNTU

STEP 1: ADD PPA TO YOUR SYSTEM

To install Java 9 and to add PPA, open the terminal and type the following command.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java

 
sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install oracle-java9-installer</pre>

The above code can add PPA to your system and to install JAVA 9 in Debian then you have to “add-apt-repository”.

 

TO INSTALL JAVA 9 in Debian:

su -
echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/java/ubuntu trusty main" | tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/webupd8team-java.list
echo "deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/java/ubuntu trusty main" | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/webupd8team-java.list
apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys EEA14886
apt-get update
apt-get install oracle-java9-installer
exit

STEP 2: CHECK THE JAVA VERSION

After executing the step 1 then you can check the installation of Java 9 in your system by typing the following command  “java-version”.  If you execute this command then you will get the below output displayed after the code “java version”.

ubuntumag-desktop:~$ java -version

java version "1.9.0-ea"

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.9.0-ea-b50)

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.9.0-ea-b50, mixed mode)

STEP 3: AUTOMATED INSTALLATION

As soon as you install the Java 9, then you will be prompted to accept the Oracle Java 9 license. So you can automatically accept the license by executing the following code.

echo oracle-java9-installer shared/accepted-oracle-license-v1-1 select true | sudo /usr/bin/debconf-set-selections

STEP 4: SETUP JAVA 9 ENVIRONMENT VARIABLE

Type the following code to install Java 9 environment variables.

sudo apt-get install oracle-java9-set-default

And finally Java 9 is installed in you system….
