All right, so like we talked about, there are multiple JDKs available. 0:00 We're going to install the official one from Oracle. 0:05 Now, one thing we should talk about here, it is more than likely that this 0:08 installation flow is going to change over time. 0:12 Therefore, what I'm going to demo here will most likely be 0:15 out of date by the time you're viewing this video. 0:18 So, please don't be alarmed if things look different. 0:20 I'm going to do my best to keep things updated in the teacher's notes. 0:24 And if you find things confusingly different, please take it to the forum and 0:27 we'll all get things sorted out. 0:31 Okay, so in your favorite search engine, go ahead and search for Java JDK. 0:34 Great, and there's the first hit here, and 0:38 it's Java SE development kit 8 is what we are looking for. 0:41 Click that. 0:45 Page has a bunch of information on it. 0:47 It's a little strange, but if you come down here a bit, 0:49 you'll see the development kit and the current version is 8u45. 0:52 Remember, it's probably gonna be different by the time you're watching this. 0:56 So the way that this works, you have to choose this Accept License Agreement. 0:59 So I'm gonna do that right now, and 1:04 then I'm gonna choose I am running on a Mac currently. 1:05 So you can see here, you can choose the different types. 1:09 I'm gonna go ahead and click the Mac version. 1:11 I'm gonna start that download. 1:13 And while that's downloading, I'm gonna come over here and read what 1:14 we just agreed to, so this Oracle binary code license agreement for Java SE. 1:18 Okay, so it says, Oracle America Incorporated for on and all we have. 1:24 No, I'm just kidding. 1:28 Wouldn't that be horrible if I sat here and read that? 1:29 But, seriously you should read this all. 1:31 It's pretty short. 1:33 It's not that bad. 1:34 One thing that we can we could talk about here while this is downloading, 1:35 is the fact that there are two different types of Windows here that are available 1:38 for Microsoft Windows. 1:42 So if you don't know if you're running the 64 bit or not, go ahead and 1:43 check in the teacher's notes, and 1:46 I have helped you be able to figure out which version you're running. 1:47 That is, of course, if you're running Windows. 1:51 Okay, I'll pop right back when this is done downloading. 1:53 Okay, so that download finished, and I went and followed the instructions in 1:56 the teacher's notes of this video, and made sure that I installed things. 1:59 So things have been installed correctly. 2:04 I'm gonna make sure that they have been installed, and 2:06 I'm gonna do that by opening up a terminal. 2:09 Mac's and Windows have different ways of getting to the terminals. 2:12 And since I'm on a Mac, I'm gonna press Cmd+Space and 2:14 I'm gonna type the word Terminal. 2:17 I'm gonna press Enter, and that's gonna open up a terminal. 2:18 Great. 2:25 If I was on Windows, I would press Windows key R, and then I'd type powershell, and 2:26 it would open up a new terminal over there. 2:31 So since Java's now been added to our path, 2:34 I should be able to type Java-version. 2:37 And it will return back the version that I just installed. 2:41 And again, remember your version number here might look different. 2:45 If you don't get this, try re-opening up a terminal again, 2:49 and if that doesn't work, there's most likely something wrong with your path. 2:52 Check out the teacher's notes for help. 2:56 Congrats, we now have Java installed. 2:58 Now in order to pass the next exercise, which wraps up this portion of the course, 3:02 simply copy these results and paste them into the challenge. 3:06 Here, I'm gonna copy it and show you, and then I'll see you in the next video. 3:10 So I'm gonna highlight. 3:13 I'm gonna right-click, and then choose Copy. 3:16 And I'm gonna paste that into the exercise. 3:19 So see you in a bit. 3:21
