I am using at home Unifi to extend my WiFi through two access points.
I am writing this post as a user who paid good money for these devices and feels betraid and left alone in the dark by Unifi.
While installing the Unifi Controller on new machine, I am prompted to install Java.
I am forwarded on this page: https://www.java.com/en/download/win10.jsp
Of course, I know that Oracle changed licensing. Yes, this is supposed to be free for personal use. But I don’t like to support this concept, as I personally think that Java should be free for all.
So, I tried to install OpenJDK, which is free to use for everybody: https://jdk.java.net/java-se-ri/14
And here started the problems: there is just a ZIP archive on that website.
Sooooo, then I googled which environment variables are installed and I set all of them manually. That is a challenge itself, as the OJDK doesn’t seem to come with the required JAR files.
Unfortunately, the Unifi Controller refuses to detect the OpenJDK.
Then I started to google again on how to use Unifi with OpenJDK: Here
As I was assuming, a lot of people are asking the very same thing.
It appears that this is working on Linux, but I could not find any post where somebody said how to make it work with OpenJDK on Windows.
After long searching, I found a post, which promises to explain how to use 3rd party Java implementations: Here
However, my patience was gone I have installed standard Java from Oracle. 🙁
@Unifi: get your software independent of Java or provide a completely hussle free solution to use OpenJDK.
