Azul provides binary .zip packages for the supported Solaris versions. You can download the package for your system from the Downloads page.

  1. Extract the package content into a folder.

    unzip <package>.zip

    The command creates a folder named after the package but without the .zip extension. This is your Azul Zulu installation folder.

  2. To verify that the package was extracted correctly, run

    <installation_folder>/bin/java -version

    Example output:

    $ zulu8.52.0.23-ca-jdk8.0.282-solaris/bin/java -version openjdk version "1.8.0_282" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (Zulu (build 1.8.0_282-b08) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (Zulu (build 25.282-b08, mixed mode)
  3. (Optional) Add <installation_folder>/bin to your PATH environment variable, so that you can execute java from any directory without specifying the full path.

    export PATH=<installation_folder>/bin:$PATH
