Java Installation

  • We believe in open-source software. Therefore, we rely on the OpenJDK instead of Oracles commercial Oracle JDK.
  • OpenJDK does not provide user-friendly installers. If this troubles you, you can use, e.g., Amazon Corretto, which offers installers for Mac OS, Linux, and Windows. The installer installs all required Java-related software and allows you to associate .jar files with Java applications (which we recommend).

Start the simulator

Either run the Vadere simulator by

  • Double-clicking vadere-gui.jar (after installing OpenJDK)
  • Entering path/to/openjdk/java -jar vadere-gui.jar
