Environment

Release : 3.7.3

Component : CA Performance Center

Resolution

1.  As outlined in the 'Third Party Agreements' section of CA Performance Management documentation, we started to bundle OpenJDK instead of Oracle Java from CAPC 3.7.3:
https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/it-operations-management/performance-management/3-7/release-notes/third-party-agreements.html 
....
AdobeOpen JDK (Added with Release 3.7.3)
.
Oracle JDK 1.8.0_192 (Removed with Release 3.7.3)
....

In CAPC 3.7.6 and above including 3.7.8 (current version at the time of writing this article) we use this version:  1.8.0_222 (adoptopenjdk)

2. Oracle JDK is no longer used as explained in the official notification letter:
https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/dam/ca/us/files/licensing/Final%20Broadcom%20CA%20Java%20Notice%20%20-%20Aug%2019%202019.pdf 

3.  OpenJDK binary is installed in the same directories where Oracle JDK was installed before: /opt/CA/jre and /opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/jre
