Any luck with the (Debian) backported OpenJDK-11?

I installed it today, replacing the repo version (8), but while it indeed works with some programs, some others are bringing up messages like:
"No suitable Java Virtual Machine could be found on your system.
The version of the JVM must be at least 1.8 and at most 1.12.
Please define INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME to point to a suitable JVM".

Any ideas?  smile
TIA!

Assuming you are running 64 bit - here is the link to download and install OpenJDK 11...

Sorry James!  smile
I forgot to mention. I'm on ASCII x64.

I already installed v.11 of OpenJDK. The backported (to stretch) one.

Well...the only solution I found, is keeping both versions installed and switching to the newer one when needed and switching back to the normal one afterwards.

Re: Any luck with the (Debian) backported OpenJDK-11?

Greetings..
My questions might be on topic.. wink
I'm running beowulf, 64bit...grabbed openjdk from devuan repos:

openjdk version "11.0.4-ea" 2019-07-16
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 11.0.4-ea+9-post-Debian-1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 11.0.4-ea+9-post-Debian-1, mixed mode, sharing)

I'm clueless about anything "Java", it's required to run the "BiglyBT" program on I2p.
Your error is very close to mine...which I don't know how to satisfy & continue with install.

My output:

$ sudo bash BiglyBT_Installer.sh

don't need JNA
not wayland

define INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME ..???
{I noticed that "INSTALL4J" packaging thing, on their download page.}

To get java version I used -v and got this output:

$ java -v
Unrecognized option: -v
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

I got something else to do? To 'create' or 'run' this JVM ??

Re: Any luck with the (Debian) backported OpenJDK-11?

I dont understand why, but at some point in the java releases, java -v nolonger displays the java version.  Try:

java -version

If this returns the version then your java itself is running. 


It sounds as though you may also need to have INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME set, as an environment variable.  Taking a guess, this may need to be set to JAVA_HOME, which is the directory where java is installed (the java directory that contains bin).  As an example, if the java executable resides in /usr/bin/java/bin, then you would need env variable:

export INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME=/usr/bin/java

I set my java env variables in /etc/bash.bashrc, but thats up to you.

Re: Any luck with the (Debian) backported OpenJDK-11?

I poked around at https://www.biglybt.com/download/ and at the bottom it mentions:

Our Windows, Linux, and Mac installers use Install4j, multi-platform installer builder 

I believe the BiglyBT_Installer.sh installer needs the Install4j installer installed before it can install.  Enough installs?  Thus disregard my comment above about setting jINSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME to JAVA_HOME.  It needs to point to Install4j, which you will have to 1st install.
