Download Java Version 1.8 0_171

Posted onby

All of the installation instructions reference using apt-get to install the default-jre package, which is fine, but as of this writing that installs OpenJDK Java 1.8.0_171. One of our applications has trouble with this version and the vendor is telling us that the last version they certify is 1.8.0_131. We have other servers in production with that version, but we can't seem to find a download or way to specify the _131 version when installing on a new server. Is there a repository of older versions of packages we can pull from and install manually? Any way to 'copy' an installed package from one machine to another?

I have found mirror hosting debian packages for OpenJDK (1.8.0_131).

So, for the second half of my question about copying a package from one install to another, I was able to use the dpkg-repack package to generate a .deb file of the OpenJDK packages needed to install it 'offline' on another server as follows:

Download Jdk 1.8.151

Download Java Version 1.8 0_171

Download Java Version 1.8 0_171 Download

On the target server I removed the default-jre package, java-common, and ca-certificates-java packages using apt-get remove to clear out the more recent version.

The older version could then be installed using (adjust filenames as needed):

The headless package and certificates had to be installed together (dependency issue separately). Then the others can be added (not sure if they're needed, but it worked for me):

After running all this, java -version gives me the expected output for the desired version:

NOTE: This covers copying a package from a server where you already have the desired version available. If anyone can answer the first question, e.g. if there's an online repository or other way to download and install a specific OpenJDK build, please add that as an answer as well as that would be a more desirable way to approach this for future installations.
