1. Go get Corretto

https://aws.amazon.com/corretto/
2. Install it
It will be installed into:
/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/amazon-corretto-8.jdk/Contents/Home/lib/jvm/openjdk8-preview
3. Change `server.box`
As shown.
Type box
Type start
And for me nothing happened
4. Install XQuartz
https://www.xquartz.org/
Install
Restart Computer
5. Try it again
Type box
Type start

 Good news it works

 Note: I way in the video the port does not work. The port is just find. I just had a typo in the file name

We are successfully running both CF10 and CF2016 on Corretto how does Adobe feel about that going forward?

Thanks for watching. The other videos take about a week to put together. I through this together in about 2 days. I know its a little less polished for that reason.

I like that Corretto appears to be an option. I would want to do a whole lot of stress tests and compatibility before moving over. Over on Stackoveflow, I am tracking what kind of stuff has been arising. Currently it is quite small. I would want to see more battle testing before committing to it.

For those interested in more on Corretto, including why it’s of interest given recent changes in oracle licensing, see a post I did last week:

And while James shows implementing it here in commandbox, you can of course also implement it with CF as implemented without CB. I point to resources on that in my post, for those interested.

As I discuss in my post, corretto (nor any opendk jvm implementation) is not yet formally supported by CF, and only light testing seems to have been done for now (by folks like James and myself, sharing new of the new JVM).

Finally, James, thanks for the interesting newn series here on using CF and vue.js. (I assume this is related to that, as you show using commandbox there and mentioned it here without this sort of further explanation.)
