JDK Documentation Installation

This section describes how to install JDK Documentation on your own local machine.

To learn JDBC more effectively, you definitely need to have a copy of the JDK Documentation installed on your computer. JDK Documentation provides you detailed information of all classes and methods used in JDK.

You can follow what I did to download and install JDK 17 Documentation.

1. Open the Java download home page with this URL: https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/downloads/.

2. Click the "Documentation Download" button near the bottom of the page. You will see "Java SE Development Kit 17 Documentation" page showing up.

3. Click the hyper link of "jdk-17.0.1_doc-all.zip".

4. Save the download file "jdk-17.0.1_doc-all.zip" to a temporary directory.

5. Double-click on "jdk-17.0.1_doc-all.zip" to extract all files to "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-17.0.1 directory.

6. To verify the installation, open the "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-17.0.1\docs\index.html" with a Web browser. You should see the JDK 17 Documentation starting page.

7. Click the "java.logging" module on the JDK 17 Documentation page to see the API documentation of the java.logging module.

If you are a Mac user, you can extract all files from "jdk-17.0.1_doc-all.zip" to /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk-17.jdk directory. And open "docs/index.html" from that directory in a Web browser.

If you are a Linux user, you can extract all files from "jdk-17.0.1_doc-all.zip" to the ~/jdk directory. And open "docs/index.html" from that directory in a Web browser.
