GitLab Java version

Hello there,

Does anyone know if GitLab (self-hosted) requires Java SE? We’re recently discovered its installed on our server and would like to remove it. I have not been able to find anything in the documentation or on this forum.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.




No it doesn’t require Java. I have gitlab-ce omnibus edition installed and there isn’t any requirement for it.

Thanks for your reply… I didn’t think so but I’m a bit confused as to why it’s on the server at all. As far as I know the server has always been dedicated to GitLab. I’m going to try moving/renaming it as a test. Thanks again for your feedback.
