Additional Requirements

    Depending on your local configuration, some components of Couchbase Server may have additional system requirements.

    Java Runtime Environment (JRE) — Analytics Service Only

    The Analytics Service requires a Java Runtime Environment to be installed. Only HotSpot-based JVMs, which includes the ones provided by OpenJDK and Oracle’s JDK, are supported.

    OpenJDK 11 is installed when you install Couchbase Server — you do not need to install any additional prerequisites to use the Analytics service.

    However, if necessary, you can specify an alternative JRE for the Analytics Service when you initialize a node. If you plan to use an alternative JRE for the Analytics service, note that the following versions are supported.
