Tried to find the requirements specification for the platform to use while doing the Java Puzzle Ball MOOC.

Preparation before the course would mean one could get off to a flying start.

Nothing on the course page until 1st November.

Is this MOOK run on an Oracle Linux VM?

Any setup required?

Will this MOOK cover Java 8 or 9?

    Hi OTG,

         Glad to have you in class. Don't worry, the setup is minimal. You'll need Oracle JDK 8 or higher, along with a suitable IDE (like NetBeans 8 or higher). There's no special Oracle Linux VM or anything like that.

         Java Puzzle Ball was originally published to run on Java 8.  I did a little work recently to make it compatible with Java 9: Java Puzzle Ball with JRE 9
