export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin

Now, source the file by

source /etc/profile.d/jdk14.sh

Then verify the installation by running java -version command.

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14+36-1461, mixed mode, sharing)

Step 2:Installing Java 14 from PPA Repository

In first step we installed the Java by using Java 14 SE Development Kit. Now, we will use the PPA repository to install Java 14 on our system. As the Java binaries are being available on the PPA repository, so we’ll add the repo with the help of given command.

sudo apt update
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linuxuprising/java

Then install the Oracle Java 14 using the below command

sudo apt -y install oracle-java14-installer

Then accept the licence, and digital technology license agreement when prompted.

sudo nano /etc/profile.d/jdk.sh
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-14-oracle
export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin

Now, source the file

source /etc/profile.d/jdk.sh

Step 3: Installing Java 14 Manually

Install the Java 14 manually using the curl command. You can also download the package from the download page.

curl -O https://download.java.net/java/GA/jdk14/076bab302c7b4508975440c56f6cc26a/36/GPL/openjdk-14_linux-x64_bin.tar.gz

Once the package is downloaded, extract it

tar xvf openjdk-14_linux-x64_bin.tar.gz

Then move the output to the /opt directory

sudo mv jdk-14 /opt/

And after it set up the Java environment.

sudo tee /etc/profile.d/jdk14.sh <<EOF
export JAVA_HOME=/opt/jdk-14
export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin

Then source the file.

source /etc/profile.d/jdk14.sh

Verify the installtion

$ echo $JAVA_HOME

$ java -version
