Advanced installation methods

This section includes information on how to set up Snow Owl and get it running using standalone installation methods

Java (JVM) Version

Snow Owl is built using Java and requires at least Java 17 to run. Only Oracle’s Java and the OpenJDK are supported.

We recommend installing the latest version in the Java 17 release series. We recommend using a supported LTS version of Java.

The version of Java that Snow Owl will use can be configured by setting the JAVA_HOME environment variable.
