We are required to keep up on the latest security patching for the software we use and would like to keep a centrally
located JRE folder. This is both for ease of upgrade to the JRE as well as a space saver.
The Unix/Linux FglAM installation would use a symbolic link to the centrally located JRE folder.
Is this both possible and supportable?
Using a symbolic link in the $FGLAM_HOME/jre folder is fine with these caveats:
1. https certificates
If you’re using secure https on FglAM, then this may not be supported as other
applications may have their certificate installed and overwriting our certificate.
2. If a FglAM problem is found later that we cannot duplicate, would request going back
to default installation for further investigation.
3. Must use same major version number of jre of FglAm (ie. 1.6.x)
The FglAM navigates to the FglAM's JRE folder and looks for the highest version directory listed there and runs that JRE.
EX If the sub directories under JRE were 1.5.0, 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 (where the sym link is) then the FglAM would run the JRE under 126.96.36.199
