GitHub Actions: Setup-java now support Adopt OpenJDK

You can now use setup-java v2 to download and cache binaries from different distributions, including Adopt OpenJDK and Zulu OpenJDK.

With setup-java v2, you can:

  • Add Java distributions of your choice
  • Get native support for Adopt OpenJDK
  • Reduce your Java setup time significantly as the action can utilize pre-cached Adopt OpenJDK distributions from GitHub-hosted runner images

As part of the v2 release, setup-java now requires a mandatory distribution argument and no longer supports legacy Java version syntax 1.x. You can use our migration guide to learn more about upgrading to v2.

- uses: actions/checkout@v2
- uses: actions/setup-java@v2
  with:
    distribution: 'adopt'
    java-version: '11'
- run: java -cp java HelloWorldApp
