We are currently using Java 1.8.0 aka Java 8.   This branch of Java, OpenJDK in our case,  is also currently being updated.   Oracle will have documentation about this particular branch.

Hope this helps

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Java version


My IT department is in the process of setting up ArchivesSpace for me, but we've run into a snag regarding Java. The install instructions say we need Java 11, but the older versions aren't being updated/patched so the security person won't let us use it. The most current version of Java 11 looks to be available through subscription, and I will subscribe if I need to, but now there is a concern that, because the subscription version is labeled as Jave SE 11, it isn't the correct version. With that background I have two questions:

  1.  Is there a version of Java that is receiving updates that doesn't require a subscription that I can use?
  2.  Could someone confirm that the SE version does work?
