Java (JVM) Version

Snow Owl is built using Java, and requires at least Java 11 in order to run. Only Oracle’s Java and the OpenJDK are supported. The same JVM version should be used on all Snow Owl nodes and clients.

We recommend installing Java version 11.0.x or a later version in the Java 11 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.
