How to Download Java 8 for Mac with M1 Chip




If you are looking for a way to download and install Java 8 for your Mac with M1 chip, you have come to the right place. In this article, I will show you two options to get Java 8 on your Mac, as well as how to use it for your needs.


What is Java 8 and why do you need it?




Java is a programming language and a platform that allows you to run applications and tools that are written in Java. Java 8 is a version of Java that was released in March 2014 and introduced many new features and improvements, such as lambda expressions, streams, default methods, date and time API, Nashorn JavaScript engine, and more.

Java 8 features and benefits




Some of the main features and benefits of Java 8 are:


  • Lambda expressions: These are anonymous functions that can be passed as arguments or returned as values. They enable functional programming style and simplify code readability and maintainability.



  • Streams: These are sequences of data elements that can be processed in parallel or sequentially. They enable declarative and efficient data manipulation and transformation.



  • Default methods: These are methods that can be added to interfaces without breaking existing implementations. They enable interface evolution and multiple inheritance.



  • Date and time API: This is a new API that provides a comprehensive and consistent model for date and time manipulation. It supports multiple calendars, time zones, units, formats, and operations.



  • Nashorn JavaScript engine: This is a new engine that allows you to run JavaScript code on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). It supports interoperability between Java and JavaScript objects and functions.



Java 8 compatibility and requirements




Java 8 is compatible with most operating systems, including macOS. However, if you have a Mac with an M1 chip, which is a new type of processor that Apple introduced in November 2020, you may encounter some challenges when installing or running Java 8. This is because not all versions of Java 8 support the M1 chip natively, which means they may require an emulator or a compatibility layer to work properly.


To install Java 8 for Mac with M1 chip, you need to meet the following requirements:


  • A Mac computer with an M1 chip running macOS Big Sur (11.x) or later



  • Administrator privileges on your Mac



  • A 64-bit browser only (e.g., Safari)



How to download and install Java 8 for Mac with M1 chip




There are two options to download and install Java 8 for Mac with M1 chip:


  • Install Azul's M1 native JDK 8



  • Install OpenJDK 8



I will explain each option in detail below.


Option 1: Install Azul's M1 native JDK 8




Azul is a company that provides certified builds of OpenJDK for various platforms, including macOS. Azul's M1 native JDK 8 is a version of Java 8 that supports the M1 chip natively, which means it does not require any emulation or compatibility layer. It also offers better performance and stability than other versions of Java 8 for Mac with M1 chip.


To install Azul's M1 native JDK 8, follow these steps:


Step 1: Download the installer




Go to and click on the Download button for Zulu JDK 8 for macOS. Choose the M1 option and click on the Download button again. You will get a file named something like zulu8.56.0.23-ca-jdk8.0.302-macosx_aarch64.dmg.

Step 2: Launch the installer




Double-click on the downloaded file to open it. You will see a window with a Zulu JDK 8 icon and an Applications folder. Drag and drop the Zulu JDK 8 icon to the Applications folder to install it.


Step 3: Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable




To make sure that your Mac recognizes the installed Java 8 as the default version, you need to set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to the location of Azul's M1 native JDK 8. To do this, follow these steps:


  • Open a terminal window by pressing Command + Space and typing Terminal.



  • Type the following command and press Enter: echo 'export JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/zulu-8.jdk/Contents/Home' >> /.zshrc



  • Type the following command and press Enter: source /.zshrc



  • Type the following command and press Enter: java -version



  • You should see something like this: openjdk version "1.8.0_302" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (Zulu 8.56.0.23-CA-macos-aarch64) (build 1.8.0_302-b08) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (Zulu 8.56.0.23-CA-macos-aarch64) (build 25.302-b08, mixed mode)



Congratulations, you have successfully installed Azul's M1 native JDK 8 on your Mac with M1 chip.


Option 2: Install OpenJDK 8




OpenJDK is an open-source implementation of Java that is maintained by a community of developers and organizations. OpenJDK 8 is another version of Java 8 that you can install on your Mac with M1 chip, but it requires a tool called Homebrew to do so.


Homebrew is a package manager that allows you to install various software and tools on your Mac easily and quickly. To install OpenJDK 8 with Homebrew, follow these steps:


Step 1: Install Homebrew




If you already have Homebrew installed on your Mac, you can skip this step. Otherwise, follow these steps:


  • Open a terminal window by pressing Command + Space and typing Terminal.



Type the following command and press Enter: /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL


  • Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation.



  • Type the following command and press Enter: brew update



You have successfully installed Homebrew on your Mac.


Step 2: Install OpenJDK 8 with Homebrew




To install OpenJDK 8 with Homebrew, follow these steps:


  • Type the following command and press Enter: brew tap AdoptOpenJDK/openjdk



  • Type the following command and press Enter: brew install --cask adoptopenjdk/openjdk/adoptopenjdk8



  • Type the following command and press Enter: /usr/libexec/java_home -V



  • You should see something like this: Matching Java Virtual Machines (2): 16 (x86_64) "Oracle Corporation" - "Java SE 16" /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk-16.jdk/Contents/Home 1.8.0_292 (arm64) "Ad optOpenJDK" - "AdoptOpenJDK 8" /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/adoptopenjdk-8.jdk/Contents/Home



  • Copy the path of the AdoptOpenJDK 8, which is the second line in the output. It should look something like this: /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/adoptopenjdk-8.jdk/Contents/Home



  • Type the following command and press Enter: echo 'export JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/adoptopenjdk-8.jdk/Contents/Home' >> /.zshrc



  • Type the following command and press Enter: source /.zshrc



  • Type the following command and press Enter: java -version



  • You should see something like this: openjdk version "1.8.0_292" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (AdoptOpenJDK)(build 1.8.0_292-b10) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (AdoptOpenJDK)(build 25.292-b10, mixed mode)



Congratulations, you have successfully installed OpenJDK 8 with Homebrew on your Mac with M1 chip.
