Has anyone else had issues trying to get JDK 15 SE from the Oracle website? I've tried on my laptop and desktop and no download starts. Checked my File Explorer in case I missed it and nothing was there. Is there something new I need to know before installing? I know Oracle has been making changes to how Java is licensed and release schedules shorted so maybe I'm missing something.
All you need to do is unpack the archive somewhere and then set the PATH environment variable to the bin folder.
The real issue is when I try to actually download the JDK from the normal place I have in the past; the Oracle website. It fails because the download never starts. Some URLs flash across the bottom of the browser window as if attempting to redirect to another page or connect for a download. No sign of a download happening is seen. Nothing in my downloads folder or anything popping up on the bottom of the browser page showing download speed or time etc.
About OpenJDK: What are the benefits to using this over what's offered from the main Oracle website? I read through some of the FAQ and like the open standards idea but the point of the whole OpenJDK is lost on me
