Get Started with Zing® 11 on Oracle Linux

Need a different Linux distro? Go back to the Zing Quick Start Guide.

These instructions will guide you through the easy process to try Zing 11 on Oracle Linux 6 and Oracle Linux 7.

Step 1: Install Zing

    1. Import Azul’s public key:
    sudo rpm --import
    1. Attach the Yum repository:
    sudo curl -o /etc/yum.repos.d/zing.repo
    1. Run the following command to install Zing:
    sudo yum install zing-jdk11.0.0

Step 2: License Zing

  1. Sign up for a Zing Trial License in order to obtain your Zing Trial Token.
  2. Check the Zing Trial Token email you received from Azul and locate your Zing Trial Token (if you did not receive the email in your inbox, check your Spam or Junk email folders).
  3. In your browser, go to, enter the Zing Trial Token, and click Download License.
  4. On your system, save the license file to /etc/zing/license.

Step 3: Run Zing

    Once you performed all installation steps, you can start running your Java applications with Zing as follows:

    1. Verify the Java version:
    /opt/zing/zing-jdk11/bin/java -version

    Sample output:

    java version "" 2019-07-24 LTS
    Zing Runtime Environment for Java Applications (product build
    Zing 64-Bit Tiered VM (product build, 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-jdk11).

    1. Start your Java application by using the newly installed Zing Virtual Machine.
    2. If you do not see the output above, visit the Zing Community Forum.
Once you verified Zing installation, proceed with the post-installation steps.
