I am using a public computer and I want to do some Java coding on it*. I was able to download IntelliJ and I was able to copy it to my desktop and run it (see here), but I was not able to install the JDK due to lack of administrator privileges (see here).

How do I get a standalone (no install necessary) JDK 8 to use with IntelliJ on Mac?

*Note: The exact reason is I do not have a working computer and I have a coding interview (with Triplebyte, see here) that involves finding and fixing bugs in a Maven Project.


Download a Zulu build. They come as a zip file for MacOS.
