Java:- JDK – Installing Java JDK on MS Windows


It is time for yours truly to catch up on Log4J Security vulnerabilities.

Java JDK Installation

Sadly, actually very sad, I do not have Java JDK ( Java Development Kit ) installed on my new computer.




Java’s JDK is available at ( Link ).

As of today, 2021-December-31st, the currently availed version is 17.01.1.


Our OS is Windows and so we chose the x64 MSI Installer for MS Windows.



To install, simply run the downloaded installer.


  1. The Welcome Screen appears
    • The version number ( 17.0.1 ) is listed
    • Please make sure that it matches your expectation based on the artifact you downloaded
  2. Installation Folder
    • Based on your organization practices or your personal preference, please choose the drive and folder the application should be installed on
  3. Installing
    • Installation is began
  4. Completion
    • Upon completion, the installer informs you that application has been successfully completed

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 17.0.1+12-LTS-39, mixed mode, sharing)



Obviously could have gone with one of Java’s IDE such as Eclipse or IntelliJ IDEA.

But, want to keep things simple and focused on the task at hand.
