Azul Zulu is an open source implementation of the Java Standard Edition ("SE") specification. It is a binary build of the OpenJDK open source project. Zulu provides a Java Runtime Environment needed for Java applications to run.

Azul Zulu 8 implements the Java SE 8 specification from Oracle.



Zulu is a subordinate charm that can be related to services needing java in your environment. Deployment is simple:

juju deploy zulu8

At this point, Zulu is waiting for a relationship to some other service. This can be any service that offers the java interface. Building off the previous step, here is a simple deployment scenario that would result in the Zulu JDK being installed on the ubuntu-devenv unit:

juju deploy ubuntu-devenv
juju add-relation ubuntu-devenv zulu8

The Zulu charm adds a public key for the Azul apt-get repository to your system, then installs Zulu-8 from it. The Zulu charm also sets Zulu-8 as default java using update-alternatives.

Once deployed, you can use Zulu to run any Java workloads.
