Jre 8 & jcp

Hello everyone,
I couldn’t download JRE 8 from Oracle (it asked for signing in and their signup is broken) and installed JDK 12 (also includes JRE). When I start the setup of JCP, it throws an error “JRE not found”. What should I do?
Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

Solved. Some bug on Oracle’s side. A few days later their signup started working.

Which OS do you use? And how do you install it, by console or by some installer?

Yes unfortunately people keep posting

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

Which is not working anymore for a long time due to licensing from oracle. Thats why I had to move away from Debian OS.

If you use Ubuntu/Xenial
sudo apt-get install default-jre default-jdk
Will do the trick

Hope this helps

Thank you for your reply. Issue solved, it was a bug on Oracle’s side. Tried a few days later and their signup worked. Weird but okay :slight_smile:
