How to install Oracle JDK 17 on Ubuntu ?

To compile latest android applications, Android may ask us to make sure we have JDK17 installed on our machine i.e. Ubuntu if we are Linux user.

To Install JDK17 on Ubuntu, first we need to down the deb file from https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/javase/jdk17-archive-downloads.html

We can also download using wget command as,

$ wget -c https://download.oracle.com/java/17/archive/jdk-17.0.8_linux-x64_bin.deb

The latest JDK17 deb file available when we installed on our machine was jdk-17.0.8_linux-x64_bin.deb so, we installed this using below command,

$ sudo dpkg -i jdk-17.0.8_linux-x64_bin.deb

once this is successful, close the current terminal and start the new terminal to make sure we have our environment variables updated after latest installation of JDK17.

Now, we can see the JDK17 installed using command,

$ java -version
java version "17.0.8" 2023-07-18 LTS
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 17.0.8+9-LTS-211)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 17.0.8+9-LTS-211, mixed mode, sharing)


$ update-java-alternatives --list
java-1.11.0-openjdk-amd64      1111       /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.11.0-openjdk-amd64
java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64       1081       /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64
jdk-17-oracle-x64              285278208  /usr/lib/jvm/jdk-17-oracle-x64

As we can see above in “java version” check, we are using JDK 17. If you still have another JDK configured, you can try to change to JDK 17 by following steps from “How to Switch Between Multiple Java Versions On Ubuntu Linux ?”

Remove JDK 17

To remove oracle JDK17 we can use below command,
