Install Java 8 on Armbian (Orange Pi Lite or higher)

Here is a quick tutorial that explains how to install java 8 on Armbian. There are many tutorials on the internet but often versions are too old or do not match Armbian.

For this tutorial, I installed Java 8 on an Orange Pi Lite (512 MB version of RAM, the full presentation article) under Armbian 5.26.

Kernel is 4.10

And now, it remains only to test the version of Java installed
