Need a different Linux distro? Go back to the Zing ® 8 Feature Preview Quick Start Guide

Note: Our software distributions are signed by an OpenPGP key when appropriate. To verify your download, see Product Signing Keys (OpenPGP) for details.
Install Zing by using an Azul System repository that corresponds to your environment.
sudo rpm --import http://repos.azul.com/azul-repo.key
For SLES 11:
sudo zypper addrepo http://repos.azul.com/zing-fp/sles/11 zing
For SLES 12:
sudo zypper addrepo http://repos.azul.com/zing-fp/sles/12 zing
sudo zypper install zing-jdk1.8.0-fp
sudo ulimit -v unlimited
Note: Azul Zing gives you a 6-month grace period. This grace period starts when the software binary for which you have not installed a license was built. At the end of the 6-month grace period you need to obtain your Zing License Key or update your bits and enjoy the extension of the grace period.
sudo zing-obtain-trial-license -p TrialLicensePasscode
Once you performed all installation steps, you can start running your Java applications with Zing as follows:
java version "1.8.0-internal-zing_220.127.116.11.dev" Zing Runtime Environment for Java Applications (build 1.8.0-internal-zing_18.104.22.168.dev-b244) Zing 64-Bit Tiered VM (build 1.8.0-zing_22.214.171.124.dev-b2356-product-azlinuxM-X86_64, mixed mode)
(you might want to set the
JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to the Zing installation directory, e.g.
$ export JAVA_HOME=/opt/zing/zing-jdk8-fp).
Once you verified Zing installation, proceed with the post-installation steps.
