official JetBrains project

Welcome to JetBrains Runtime!

JetBrains Runtime is a fork of OpenJDK available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. It supports enhanced class redefinition (DCEVM), features optional JCEF, a framework for embedding Chromium-based browsers, includes a number of improvements in font rendering, keyboards support, windowing/focus subsystems, HiDPI, accessibility, and performance, provides better desktop integration and bugfixes not yet present in OpenJDK.

NOTE: This is a development branch that is periodically synchronized with the OpenJDK master branch.

Release builds are based on these branches:

Why Use JetBrains Runtime?

  • Embedded browser: JetBrains Runtime includes the Java Chromium Embedded Framework (JCEF), which enables you to embed a Chromium-based browsers in your JVM-based application. To use it, download a build with JCEF.
  • Enhanced class re-definition with the DCEVM technology that makes it easier to reload changed code without restarting JVM; this feature needs to be explicitly enabled with -XX:+AllowEnhancedClassRedefinition.
  • Better FPS performance for graphics-intensive applications.
  • Improved font rendering, keyboard input (such as shortcuts and multinational keyboards), HiDPI and accessibility support.
  • Robust desktop experience: GUI-related fixes often reach JetBrains Runtime much earlier than the corresponding version of OpenJDK.

Getting Sources

macOS, Linux

git config --global core.autocrlf input
git clone git@github.com:JetBrains/JetBrainsRuntime.git
cd JetBrainsRuntime
git checkout jbr21


git config --global core.autocrlf false
git clone git@github.com:JetBrains/JetBrainsRuntime.git
cd JetBrainsRuntime
git checkout jbr21

Configuring the Build Environment

Here are quick per-platform instructions for those who can't wait to get started. Please refer to OpenJDK build docs for in-depth coverage of all the details.

TIP: To get a preliminary report of what's missing, run ./configure and check its output. It would usually have meaningful advice on how to solve the problem.

Linux (Docker)

Create a container:

$ cd jb/project/docker
$ docker build .
Successfully built 942ea9900054

Run these commands in the new container:

$ docker run -v `pwd`../../../../:/JetBrainsRuntime -it 942ea9900054
# cd /JetBrainsRuntime
# sh ./configure
# make images CONF=linux-x86_64-normal-server-release

Ubuntu Linux

Install the necessary tools, libraries, and headers with:

$ sudo apt-get install autoconf make build-essential libx11-dev libxext-dev libxrender-dev libxtst-dev \
       libxt-dev libxrandr-dev libcups2-dev libfontconfig1-dev libasound2-dev

Get Java 19 (for instance, Azul Zulu Builds of OpenJDK 19).

Then run the following:

$ cd JetBrainsRuntime
$ git checkout main
$ sh ./configure
$ make images

This will build the release configuration under ./build/linux-x86_64-server-release/.


Install the following:

From the command line:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvarsall.bat" amd64
"c:\Program_Files\cygwin64\bin\mintty.exe" /bin/bash -l

The first command sets up environment variables, the second starts a Cygwin shell with the proper environment.

In the Cygwin shell:

$ cd JetBrainsRuntime
$ git checkout main
$ bash configure --with-toolchain-version=2019
$ make images

This will build the release configuration under ./build/windows-x86_64-server-release/.


Install the following:

From the command line:

$ cd JetBrainsRuntime
$ git checkout main
$ sh ./configure
$ make images

This will build the release configuration under ./build/macosx-x86_64-server-release/.


You can use CLion to develop native parts of the JetBrains Runtime and IntelliJ IDEA for the parts written in Java. Both require projects to be created.



$ make compile-commands

in the git root and open the resulting build/.../compile_commands.json file as a project. Then use Tools | Compilation Database | Change Project Root to point to git root of this repository.

See also this detailed step-by-step tutorial for all platforms: How to develop OpenJDK with CLion.



$ sh ./bin/idea.sh

in the git root to generate project files (add --help for options). If you have multiple configurations (for example, release and fastdebug), supply the --conf <conf_name> argument. Then open the git root directory as a project in IDEA.
