              Notes about JRE Requirements when using Visual Profiler on the macOS

              Nvidia Cuda For Mac Release
                OpenJDK provides an open-source (and standards compliant) implementation of a Java compliant JVM.
                Binaries are provided by various vendors such as Oracle, Azul Systems (Zulu), Amazon, Red Hat, IBM, etc.
                Visual Profiler needs to use an older version of Java, specifically JRE update 151, to work correctly.
                This is currently not offered by Oracle JDK but is provided by Azul Systems (Zulu).

              Nvidia Cuda For Mac Os X Release

                The Bazel Build project also uses the Zulu builds of OpenJDK.

              Nvidia Cuda Install

                Download JDK 8.0.144 to get JRE update 151:
                  • Download version: 8u144-b01 (Zulu: 8.23.0.3) .dmg.zip.tar.gz
