In this tutorial we will walk through the process of installing the Java 1.8 and Java 9 JDKs in Windows for Java development. When we're done, we'll have both JDKs installed, with one of them set up as our default leaving us with a Java development environment ready to compile and run applications.
Trying to get an open source toolchain configured in Windows for C++ can sometimes be a headache. In Windows, you can simply install Visual Studio and use the Microsoft C++ compiler, but you may want to use the free GNU compiler (g++) instead.
