Java Open JDK 11

Get the download at https://jdk.java.net/archive/.

The default location used by MacOS to search for the available JDK is – /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines. We can use the below-mentioned command to find the available JDKs installed on the system.

/usr/libexec/java_home -V

It will list down the available JDKs as shown below.

Using the terminal, go to Downloads by issuing the command cd Downloads.

Extract the downloaded file by issuing the command tar -xf openjdk-11_osx-x64_bin.tar.gz.

Install the extracted OpenJDK by issuing the command sudo mv jdk-11.jdk /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/. Enter your device’s password when prompted.

Verify the installation by issuing the command java -version.

Switch JDK. If you have multiple JDKs installed, we can switch between the multiple JDKs using the command as shown below.

export JAVA_HOME=`/usr/libexec/java_home -v jdk-11.jdk`


IntelliJ

Go to the official download page for MacOS and download the executable file for the community edition.

Run the file, drag and drop the IntelliJ icon in the applications folder and wait for the installation to finish.

After installation, open intelliJ and if it opens successfully then it has been installed properly. You may also keep the IntelliJ in the dock by right-clicking the program and choosing the Keep in Dock option.

Click on the Next button on the window shown below and all succeeding windows and wait for the installation to finish.

Leave the Launch XAMPP option checked and click the Finish button

The XAMPP application should open. Go to the Manage Servers tab. Try to start the MySQL Database and Apache Web Server. It should start normally.
