OpenJDK with Yellowfin

Yellowfin is fully functional with OpenJDK and it is quite easy to switch your Yellowfin to use this instead of the standard Oracle distribution.


Linux:

  1. Install the JDK or JRE of your choice: http://openjdk.java.net/install/
  2. Typically this is simply:
     $ sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre
  3. Follow the instructions below to point Yellowfin to the newly installed version of java: (eg: "/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre")
  4. Restart your Yellowfin instance


Windows:

  1. Download binaries: http://jdk.java.net/10/
  2. Extract the entire folder to a known location on your computer (eg: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-10.0.2)
  3. Follow the instructions below to point Yellowfin to this folder
  4. Restart your Yellowfin instance
