Need a different Linux distro? Go back to the Zing® 8 Feature Preview Quick Start Guide
These instructions guide you through the Zing® 8 Preview installation on Amazon Linux. Amazon Linux is the preferred when running on AWS. For other Linux distributions on AWS select those on the Zing® 8 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.
sudo rpm --import http://repos.azul.com/azul-repo.key
sudo curl -o /etc/yum.repos.d/zing-fp.repo http://repos.azul.com/zing-fp/amazonlinux/zing.repo
sudo yum install kernel-devel-$(uname -r) zing-jdk1.8.0-fp
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_184.108.40.206.dev" Zing Runtime Environment for Java Applications (build 1.8.0-internal-zing_220.127.116.11.dev-b244) Zing 64-Bit Tiered VM (build 1.8.0-zing_18.104.22.168.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.
