Fedora install JDK (OpenJDK)

As we were setting up a machine that would be used for software development, we came to the need of installing a Java Development Kit (JDK).
There are two popular choices on the web between the OpenJDK and the Oracle JDK, we decided to go with the OpenJDK option which is a free and open source implementation of the Java Platform and it is part of the official Fedora repositories.

To install the OpenJDK along with all the needed libraries for development we used the following command:

sudo dnf install java-1.8.0-openjdk java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel;

On our GNU/Linux Fedora the installation folder of the JDK was /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.8.0-openjdk.
