Issue/Introduction

Customers would like to know Information regarding the " java.exe " which is located under Agent Installed location.

Environment

Any Supported CA/Brodcom Agents

Component : SITEMINDER - Web Agent

Resolution

- The " java.exe " (Located under ANY AGENT INSTALLED LOCATION\install_config_info\install_config_jre\bin) is mainly used to extract and/or unpacking the Installer to complete the product Installation. We don't see a java process running for this.

- Only If needed and In case If you have any concerns regarding the security scan on this java.exe and/or If it come up in a security scan, then Just ZIP this folder and keep it in the same location for future use.

- This jave.exe is required to uninstall the product when ever needed so we have to maintain this java.exe under the above mentioned location.

- Manually we cannot upgrade this java since its bundled with the CA WebAgent Product Installer.
