Hello Norbert,

if you can live with OpenJDK 8, just install the port
java/openjdk8 and you're all set.

You may also want to install an IDE, like java/eclipse
or java/intellij to ease development. Both run just fine
with OpenJDK8:

$ uname -a
FreeBSD 10.3-STABLE FreeBSD 10.3-STABLE #0 r299381: Tue May 10 21:34:52 CEST 2016     root at  amd64

$ java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_77"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_77-b03)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.77-b03, mixed mode)
