Pinned topic Download JDK 8 for Windows

‏2018-07-10T16:49:26Z |

I am trying to download the latest IBM JDK 8 for Windows 64. Googled "IBM JDK 8 download" and it sends me to the page https://developer.ibm.com/javasdk/downloads/sdk8/ , there is no download link for Windows. You have to download the "IBM Development Package for Eclipse". That is fine, it says the package has JDK 8. However, after I download it, I found the JDK is only 7.1. 

 

How do we download JDK 8 for Windows?

    I was also looking for the IBM SDK 8 for Windows and did exactly as described above, with the same result.

    Should it be concluded that IBM does not provide an SDK 8 for Windows and that the recommendation is to use the one from Oracle?

    I was finally able to download it from: https://adoptopenjdk.net/?variant=openjdk8&jvmVariant=openj9

    There is currently a problem with the download page, where all the old versions of the package are displayed, and the newest version is not shown at the top. The version shown at the top does include Java 7.1 as described. Please scroll down and download the newest version of the package found in the list. For example at the time of writing Version 64-6.5.20 of the package is the latest one, and it includes JDK 8.
