Java SDK tutorial prerequisites

To follow the Java SDK tutorials we recommend that you have the following environments set up.

Java JDK

Make sure you have the Java JDK installed. These tutorials were produced using Java SE 14.0.1. You can check which version you have installed using this command:

java -version

Either Gradle or IntelliJ IDEA

Either download and install the IntelliJ IDEA, install Gradle, or do both. The IDE comes packaged with Gradle, which is a dependency management and build tool that we use for Java projects.

Temporal server

Download, install, and run the Temporal server via docker-compose. It is easy to do and you can keep it running in the background while you build applications.
