Java

Java is a prerequisite of many applications designed for platform portability, and Minecraft is built to be portable!

While the Minecraft Server software will launch with Oracle Java 8 that is bundled with the latest Raspbian builds, it is currently very unstable and crashes frequently. Instead, it is recommended that you install and use the OpenJDK 7 Headless package to run your Minecraft Server.

  1. To check the currently installed version of Java, use the following command.
    java -version

    The command will display output similar to the following.

    java version "1.8.0"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0-b132)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.0-b70, mixed mode)
  2. To install the OpenJDK 7 Headless package, use the following command.
    sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre-headless -y

    The OpenJDK 7 Headless package will be downloaded and installed, an automated process that takes only a couple of minutes.

  3. To verify the currently installed version of Java, use the following command.
    java -version

    The command will display output similar to the following.

    java version "1.7.0_79"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.5.6) (7u79-2.5.6-1~deb7u1+rpi1)
    OpenJDK Zero VM (build 24.79-b02, mixed mode)
