Is JAVA necessary on the Nolio Release Automation Agents ?
We know that it was needed for launching the Automation Studio. But apart from that do we still need Java or can we remove it ?
Wanting to remove old and unsupported versions of Java.
Release : 6.6
Component : CA RELEASE AUTOMATION AGENT
In short, it depends. The Release Automation Agent is absolutely a java application/program. However, there have been two types of agent installers. The two types are:
If you know which agent installer you used and know that it was the agent installer that bundled the jre then you can remove it. But if you used the agent installer that uses a public jre then you must be careful and not remove the jre used by the agent. If you're not sure then you can typically navigate to the <agent_home>/jre folder. If you see the files/folders that you would normally expect to see in a jre installation and they are not links to files located somewhere else on the system then the public jre versions of java can be removed.
