How to install Java on macOS 10.14 Mojave?

I installed macOS 10.14 Mojave on my MacBook.

Then I checked if Java 10 was still up to date. The newest version suggested should be 10.4 (if I recall correctly). I installed the update and afterwards I was asked if I wanted to remove the older version, which I acknowledged.

Then, no update was installed.

I downloaded Java 11 from:

When I click on the downloaded file jdk-11.0.1_osx-x64_bin.dmg, a setup routine is executed. However, no Java 11 is installed.

So, big question: how do I get the latest version of Java on macOS 10.14 Mojave?

Since there is no GUI item for Java 11: how will this Java version be kept up to date?

I assume this might happen automatically, or it should to avoid obsolete, buggy software on our machines. One more argument for packing CT with Java, although this means more work for Igor a bit more bandwidth. But it also assures a consistent user experience.

Starting from Java 11, CafeTran will include it in its installation for all supported operating systems Mac, Windows and Linux.

One more note: When using the update routine for Java, Java loads a new version, uninstalls the old one and … does nothing. Java has been removed and pronto. This is not user-friendly, but this note might be obsolete soon.
