This section provides a tutorial example on how to download and install JDK 1.8.0 (Java SE 8) on a Windows 7 system.

Downloading and installing JDK 1.8.0 (Java SE 1.8) on a Windows system is easy. Here is what I did on my Windows 7 system:

To test the installation, open a command window to try the "java" command:

herong> progra~1\java\jdk1.8.0\bin\java -version
java version "1.8.0"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0-b132)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.0-b70, mixed mode, sharing)

Congratulations, you have successfully installed JDK on your Windows system!
