Installing the Java Development Kit (JDK)

Because the PPM Server is based on Java, the machine that hosts it must also host a Java Virtual Machine (JVM), which is part of the Java Development Kit (JDK). JDKs native to the operating systems supported by PPM are available from either Oracle or from the operating system vendor.

Note: You must install the complete JDK. The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) alone is not supported.

To install the JDK:

  1. Download the JDK for your operating system from Oracle or from your operating system vendor's Web site.

  2. Verify that the JAVA_HOME environment variable is set correctly. If the path set for JAVA_HOME is not correct, set it to the correct value.
