20.2.1 Dependencies

Clojure requires Java. Clojure officially supports Java LTS releases (currently Java 8 and Java 11). You can use any Java installation, whether it’s a commercial release from Oracle or an open source version based on OpenJDK (like adoptopenjdk).

The Clojure tools require that either the java command is on the path or that the ‘JAVA_HOME’ environment variable is set.
