Problem Description:
Java SE downloads are for the entire Java Development Kit. I only need the Java Runtime Environment (JRE). After installing, I then need to uninstall the Development Kit. I understand if you want to offer the Development Kit for download, but, then the JRE should also be an option (as was the case with Oracle's download offerings).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to
2. Download jdk-8u212-windows-x64.exe
3. Install using the exe

Actual Result:
Installs the entire Java Development Kit.

Expected Result:
Install only the JRE.

Any Workarounds:
Uninstall the Java Development Kit.



For Java 11 and above, the entire JDK is needed which is the reason why we are providing the JDK.

Ok, but, I'm only using Java 8, so would it be possible to provide a link to the JRE only, so that I don't have to perform the extra step of uninstalling the JDK every time?
