Mac / Linux Terminal Switch between or change your Java Version for a session.


  1. We need to install Java 8 via the Terminal. Therefore open the terminal. Execute the following command:
brew install cask adoptopenjdk8
/usr/libexec/java_home -V
export JAVA_HOME=`/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.8.0_292`
java -version


You only need a few commands to set your java version.
