Question: How can I properly and completely uninstall Java?

I tried installing the Java Developers' Kit to install veraPDF. It didn't work. I don't know Java, and can't make sense of the articles regarding the error messages, so I can't debug it for this one application. I don't want to keep it and waste disk space for *nothing*.


So how can I properly and completely uninstall Java? I understand that there are official instructions which don't work.

MacBook Air (11-inch Mid 2013), macOS Sierra (10.12.6)

I checked the system library, and removed the Java 9 info from there, leaving Java 8. And now the app runs. So I'll keep Java 8.
