Hi, are there any contraindications against automatic Java upgrades on WS1 servers hosting (DS, AWCM and Console)? I do recall that in the past some of the AirWatch services were dependent on exact Java installation folders (I think it was either Proxy or MAG).
I`d still not recommend JavaRE-Auto-Update. I only update JRE through the WSOne-Integrated installers and one still needs to keep an eye on AWCM, SEGv2 (which usually works fine) and especially Windows VMware-Tunnel-Cert-Stores.
With Oracle Java JRE 8 being end of free support. What is the direction or path for JRE? Do they support the free versions or OpenJDK?
https://blogs.oracle.com/java-platform-group/oracle-java-se-releases-faq The January 15th, 2019 scheduled Critical Patch Update of Java 8 (8u201, and the related 8u202 Patch Set Update) are the last update available under the BCL license which is generally free for general purpose desktop and server use, and has been the Oracle JDK license for several years. The following update of Java 8, scheduled for April 16, 2019 (8u211 and the related 8u212 Patch Set Update), will be made available under a new license which will be free for personal individual desktop use, and free for development, testing, prototyping and demonstration purposes.
A critical vulnerability has been reported in the Java version installed with version 1903. We also updated Java, but we found that some devices did not come with App Catalog. When we downgrade Java, we see that the problem has improved. The customer wants to close the vulnerability by updating Java, but is causing problems with AirWatch. Is there an article showing the relationship between Java version and AirWatch versions?
