Set-up Java Development Kit (JDK)

The latest version of Java JDK can be downloaded from Oracle's Java site Java SE Downloads.
Follow the instructions that are present in downloaded files to install and configure the setup.
Finally set PATH and JAVA_HOME environment variables to refer to the directory that contains java and javac, typically java_install_dir/bin and java_install_dir respectively.
When you are running Windows and installed the JDK in C:jdk1.8.0_102, then we should put the following line in C:autoexec.bat file.

Another way is right-click on My Computer, select Properties, then Advanced, then Environment Variables. Then, you can update the PATH value and press the OK button.
On Linux, if the SDK is installed in /usr/local/jdk1.8.0_102 and use the C shell, then put the following code into your .cshrc file.

Another way is when you use Android studio, it will know automatically where you have installed your Java.
