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.
