GeoServer requires a Java 7 runtime to be installed on your system. For more information about Java and GeoServer please see the section on Java Considerations.

The most common way to install GeoServer is using the OS-independent binary. This version is a GeoServer web application (webapp) bundled inside Jetty, a lightweight servlet container system. It has the advantages of working very similarly across all operating systems plus being very simple to set up.
