Install Java via Oracle Java Platform Extension for Visual Studio Code
Already a Visual Studio Code user wanting to start development with Java? Look no further!
The Oracle Java Platform extension helps you develop your Java project, and it is available via Visual Studio Code Marketplace. If no JDK is present in your system then the extension can set it up for you via its built-in JDK Downloader:
You can also access the JDK Downloader through the Visual Studio Code menu:
View > Command Palette > Download, install, and Use JDK option in the command palette.
This setup provides options for Oracle JDK, OpenJDK, but also allows you to choose from any locally installed JDKs.
If you already have JDK binaries downloaded in your system, you can point the JDK Downloader to their specific path.
