Fast Track to Java 11 and OO Development: Lab Setup Instructions (Windows OS: Java 11 and IntelliJ)

Below are the standard requirements for this course. If you have any questions or issues, please contact us.

Important Note: Student lab files are required on each computer used for the course. The links for these are not in this lab setup, and you should receive them separately.

Other notes:

Hardware and classroom setup.

Each student and the instructor shall have a workstation that fulfills the listed requirements.

Install 7-zip

We’ve found that there are sometimes problems using the built in Windows archive/zip utility. This generally has to do with long path lengths that it can’t handle. Use 7-zip to extract the labs and any software zips which we’ve found very reliable.

Lab Files: Each student and instructor must have lab files installed (links to these files are generally sent separately via e-mail).

Other instructor requirements for the classroom

Install Java Development Kit – JDK 11 (11.0.12)

Install IntelliJ IDEA Community (2021 versions)

Instructions are for Version 2021. Any relatively recent version should work with little problem, but may not have been tested, and may have minor differences. Note that you need at least V 2018.2 for Java 11 support

NOTE: IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate will also work fine, if you are using that.
