Not to flog a deceased equine, but the dbeaver-ce error message when I tried
to load it said it could not find a java runtime engine (jre) where it
looked for it. The java development kits (jdk) include a jre so I've always
installed a jdk.

AlienBOB's: openjdk-8u252_b09-x86_64-1alien

And that's the understatement of the week.

But they all respond to 'jdk' so perhaps the REQUIES line could be specific
as to which jdk flavor/version is needed.
