DBeaver requires Java 1.8 or higher. Windows and MacOS installers include JRE 1.8.
If you are on Mac OS X and you do NOT use PKG installer then you will need to setup JDK 1.8+.
Note: 3rd-party JDBC drivers may have have their own system requirements.
Windows installer – run installer executable. It will automatically upgrade version (if needed). Installer doesn’t change any system settings or Java installation. Included JRE will be accessible only for DBeaver.
MacOS PKG – just run it and follow installer pages. JRE 1.8 is included (and will be accessible only for DBeaver).
MacOS DMG – just run it and drag-n-drop DBeaver into Applications. Make sure you have Java 1.8 installed. On reinstall do the same (your settings won’t be lost).
Debian package – run
sudo dpkg -i dbeaver-<version>.deb. Then execute “dbeaver &”.
RPM package – run
sudo rpm -ivh dbeaver-<version>.rpm. Then execute “dbeaver &”. Note: to upgrade use “-Uvh” parameter.
ZIP archive – extract archive and run “dbeaver” executable. Do not extract archive over previous version (remove previous version before install). Java 1.8+ must be installed separately.
Upgrade – don’t be afraid to remove previous DBeaver version – your settings won’t be lost. All settings are kept in separate folder (.dbeaver4 in user home)
Java notes: if you use Windows or MacOS installer then you don’t need to install Java. Otherwise you will need to setup Java separately. Java 1.8+ must be the default Java version. To validate this run “java -version” in terminal window.
You can use PPA repository to easily install/upgrade DBeaver on Debian Linuxes. It is still in beta test mode but seems to be quite stable:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:serge-rider/dbeaver-ce sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install dbeaver-ce
You may get latest build (EA version) of DBeaver. Usually it contains all major bug fixes found in current stable version. Just choose the archive corresponding to your OS and hardware from the following folder: EA version downloads.

All recent DBeaver versions are available in archive:
DBeaver CE is free software. You can use it for any purpose with no limitations. This software is provided “as is” without express or implied warranty.
Windows and MacOS installers contain bundled Java Runtime (JRE). It is recommended to use JRE shipped with DBeaver. It won’t be break any existing JRE installation, nothing will be copied in system folders, registry or environment variables. This JRE will be accessible only for DBeaver.
DEB/RPM installers will setup all required components (including JRE) prior to DBeaver installation.
All other versions are just minimal archives that don’t contain the JRE or an installer. Just unzip and start dbeaver executable (if you upgrade from a previous DBeaver version then delete it before upgrade).
