Installation on macOS Using the Zulu ZIP File

Before you install Zulu, complete the steps described in the section Preparing the Zulu Installation Platform.

  1. Download the installation package to your local Downloads folder.

  2. Extract the downloaded <zulu_package>.zip file. Choose a method.

    • From a Finder window, double-click the <zulu_package>.zip file.

    • From a terminal command line, run:

      unzip <zulu_package>.zip

    For example, to expand the package zulu11.41.23-ca-jdk11.0.8-macosx_x64.zip, run:

    unzip -q zulu11.41.23-ca-jdk11.0.8-macosx_x64.zip

    All Zulu files for the OpenJDK are expanded into the corresponding folder.

    For the above example, this will be the folder:

    ~/Downloads/zulu11.41.23-ca-jdk11.0.8-macosx_x64/
