First steps - Zulu

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: Notebook HP, CPU ryzen 5 2500u, 8GB RAM
    • OS: Windows 10 Home
    • Java Runtime Environment: which java platform is used and what version
    • openHAB version:
  • Issue of the topic: which Zulu do I have to install?

I just start to make the first steps in OpenHab following the installation guide and I immediately have some problem in Java environment setup at “Prerequisite” section:

  1. the link in the openhab page brings me to
  2. Here I do not understand if I’m choosing the correct version 8 Java
  3. The Zulu installation guide, brings me instead to

What kind of Zulu I have to install?
Should I have to follow the 60 pages of Zulu_UserGuide.pdf in order to install Java environment?

Thanks a lot.
