OpenJDK is the official reference implementation of the Java Platform, Standard Edition, a cross-platform computing environment that lets you develop and deploy Java applications on desktops, servers, and embedded systems.

This package provides everything you need to develop a Java application on Linux, including all of the latest development tools, class libraries, API documentation, and source code of the Java Development Kit (JDK).

Installing this package does not replace the JDK provided by your Linux distribution but instead allows you to use both of them side by side. To get started, see the README file for this package on GitHub:

Java and OpenJDK are trademarks or registered trademarks of Oracle and/or its affiliates.
