First of all JDK 16 is the open-source reference implementation of version 16 of the Java SE Platform, as specified by by JSR 390 in the Java Community Process. JDK 16 reached General Availability on 16 March 2021. Production-ready binaries under the GPL are available from Oracle; binaries from other vendors will follow shortly.
Well lets begin!
This tutorial is very simple and will show a install and unistall process of JDK 16!
Time to INSTALL! (remember to unistall all past JDK versions)
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linuxuprising/java
Press enter when it tells you.
This may take a while or very short amount of time.
sudo apt update
This now will take a while.
This command will now install JDK 16
sudo apt install oracle-java16-installer
Press y when it prompts you
Wait 1-5 minutes max
And you are done!
To test go to your terminal and type
That is all for installation!
When JDK 17 comes out fully maybe you want to unistall JDK 16 to install JDK 17
The first command to unistall is
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:linuxuprising/java
This may take a a little amount of time or a while
sudo apt-get remove oracle-java16-installer
This command will usually take as long as the installation.
Once its done try typing in the command
You will get a error message!
That is all for Installing/Unistalling JDK 16. Try doing this on other Linux Distros to see if it works. I only tested Ubuntu and Debian. The Ubuntu Server Distro will also work!
