Hi guys, I'm trying to run the rapidminer-server-installer on MacOS Sierra, but the RapidMiner Server Installer window don't open. 


I`m getting this error:

    Hey there,


    RapidMiner Server requires Java 8 to work. That class is part of the JEE specification and as such it has been removed from Java 10/Java 11. You need to install Java 8 and then modify the script to install the server to enable the proper $JAVA_HOME, and it will work.


    All the best,

    Hi. First, you need the Java 8 JRE to run RapidMiner Server installer on your system. Afterwards you can set the enviroment variable $JAVA_HOME to the path of your installed Java 8 JRE binary as mentioned by @rfuentealba . The installer script should pick it up afterwards, maybe you need to relog or reboot first.
