Java

Introduction

Java is a general-purpose, object-oriented programming language. Interally, it uses a virtual machine, making “compiled” java programs very independent of the actual hardware executing them.

We provide the JRE / Java Runtime Environment (java), but not the JDK / Java Development Kit (javac). If you need the latter, contact us, so we can add it.

Versions

We only provide the version available in CentOS 7.

Update Policy

Java is updated alongside the rest of CentOS 7 reglarily.

Connection to webserver

In order to make your application accessable from the outside, you need to connect it to the webserver, using a web backend. Please note that your application must listen on the IP 0.0.0.0. You can choose any port between 1024 and 65535.
