Installation on Solaris 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 a reasonable location on your system. For example:

    /usr/java/

  2. Extract the downloaded .zip file.

    unzip <zulu_package>.zip

All Zulu files for the OpenJDK are extracted into appropriate folders relative to the <zulu_dir>/<zulu_jdk> subfolder. For example:

/usr/java/zulu8.27.0.8-jdk8.0.162-solaris/

For Zulu 7 64-bit installation you need to install it over the 32-bit version. For example

unzip zulu7.22.0.4-sa-jdk7.0.171-solaris_i686.zip

unzip -o zulu7.22.0.4-sa-jdk7.0.171-solaris_x64.zip
