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_188.8.131.52.dev" Zing Runtime Environment for Java Applications (build 1.8.0-internal-zing_184.108.40.206.dev-b244) Zing 64-Bit Tiered VM (build 1.8.0-zing_220.127.116.11.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.
