Server JRE (Java SE Runtime Environment)


(Waiting for Maintainer to take corrective action)

Package test results have failed.

This version is in moderation and has not yet been approved. This means it doesn't show up under normal search.
  • Until approved, you should consider this package version unsafe - it could do very bad things to your system (it probably doesn't but you have been warned, that's why we have moderation).
  • This package version can change wildly over the course of moderation until it is approved. If you install it and it later has changes to this version, you will be out of sync with any changes that have been made to the package. Until approved, you should consider that this package version doesn't even exist.
  • You cannot install this package under normal scenarios. See How to install package version under moderation for more information.
  • There are also no guarantees that it will be approved.

There are versions of this package awaiting moderation (possibly just this one). See the Version History section below.

server-jre has passed automated validation. It may have or may still fail other checks like testing (verification).
Congratulations! This package passed automatic validation review without flagging on any issues the validator currently checks. A human review could still turn up issues a computer may not easily find.

server-jre has failed automated testing.
This is not the only check that is performed so check the package page to ensure a 'Ready' status.
Please visit for details.
The package status will be changed and will be waiting on your next actions.

  • NEW! We have a test environment for you to replicate the testing we do. This can be used at any time to test packages! See
  • Please log in and leave a review comment if you have questions and/or comments.
  • If you see the verifier needs to rerun testing against the package without resubmitting (a issue in the test results), you can do that on the package page in the review section.
  • If the verifier is incompatible with the package, please log in and leave a review comment if the package needs to bypass testing (e.g. package installs specific drivers).
  • Automated testing can also fail when a package is not completely silent or has pop ups (AutoHotKey can assist - a great example is the VeraCrypt package).
  • A package that cannot be made completely unattended should have the notSilent tag. Note that this must be approved by moderators.

We've found server-jre v8.0.212 in a submitted status and waiting for your next actions. It has had no updates for 20 or more days since a reviewer has asked for corrections. Please note that if there is no response or fix of the package within 15 days of this message, this package version will automatically be closed (rejected) due to being stale.

Take action:
* Log in to the site and respond to the review comments.
* Resubmit fixes for this version.
* If the package version is failing automated checks, you can self-reject the package.

If your package is failing automated testing, you can use the chocolatey test environment to manually run the verification and determine what may need to be fixed.

Note: We don't like to see packages automatically rejected. It doesn't mean that we don't value your contributions, just that we can not continue to hold packages versions in a waiting status that have possibly been abandoned. If you don't believe you will be able to fix up this version of the package within 15 days, we strongly urge you to log in to the site and respond to the review comments until you are able to.

Server JRE (Server Java Runtime Environment) for deploying Java applications on servers. Includes tools for JVM monitoring and tools commonly required for server applications, but does not include browser integration (the Java plug-in), auto-update, nor an installer.


This is just a metapackage for the latest Server JRE (currently Server JRE 8). Have a look at the server-jre8 package for more details.

The Oracle JDK License has changed for releases starting April 16, 2019. Please only use this package if you have purchased a valid license for your environment.

Parameters (for server-jre8)

The following package parameters can be set:

  • /InstallationPath - Install to a different destination folder. Default: C:\tools\Java\server-jre
  • /Force - Force setting JAVA_HOME to the new version even if the variable was already set
  • /Machine - Set JAVA_HOME and PATH on 'Machine' level, instead of 'User' level

These parameters can be passed to the installer with the use of --packageParameters but since these parameters
don't directly affect the virtual package, we need to add --paramsglobal to pass them to the target/dependent server-jre8.

For example: choco install server-jre --paramsglobal --packageParameters '"/InstallationPath:C:\tools\Java /Force /Machine"'.


  • This package has no content.

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
