The installer analyzes the system to ensure the Java version is correct. If the Java version found on your path is not Java version 1.8.0_60 or newer, you see a warning but the installer might still be able to work. However, you must have Java version 1.8.0_60 or newer to use the Java-based tools such as the IDE and Performance Analyzer. If you are on a 64-bit system, you must use a 64-bit Java for the installer to work correctly.
The Oracle Developer Studio Installer gives you the option of customizing your installation by selecting which components of the software to install.
The default installation directory is /opt.
The links make it easy to find the compilers and tools because /usr/bin is on all users' paths by default.
This option displays when you are running the installer on a system that has zones. By default, the software installs to the current zone only. When you run the installer in the global zone, installing in the current zone makes the installed product visible only in the global zone.
The generated zip file desktop-distribution.zip is placed in the lib directory in your Oracle Developer Studio installation.
On the Summary page, verify that the list of components to be installed is correct and that you have adequate space on your system for installation.
The installer shows progress of the installation and informs you when the installation is complete.
