Discussion on: MacOS users, Java problems in Big Sur? HELP

I use sdkman to manage my JDKs and other java-related stuff. It works pretty good even on MacOS Big Sur. I would recommend it.

I also use sdkman, but I can not start jnlp files using javaws (although it is on the PATH and can be called without full path) because /usr/libexec/java_home refuses to recognize my java installation:

> /usr/libexec/java_home

The operation couldn’t be completed. Unable to locate a Java Runtime.
Please visit for information on installing Java.

Any pointers how to solve that? (Big Sur 11.5.2, AdoptOpenJDK 11.0.11)

Thanks. It fixed the issue when using Intellij.
