Amazon JRE vs JDK

Tue Sep 24, 2019 3:56 pm

GGS manual suggest replacing Oracle Java JDK with Amazon Corretto 8 x64 JDK.

I’ve usually installed previous GGS using Java JRE so, if possible I’d like to know if the Amazon JRE is enough or if the JDK is needed and if the latest version 11 or Corretto can be used or it's better to avoid it.

JRE is sufficient, no need for JDK.

Thank You for your answer.

What about Amazon Corretto 8 VS Amazon Corretto 11 ?

Which one is better to use with GGS ?

Both will work just fine, however JRE is only available for Corretto 8.
Make sure you have the x64 version installed.
