Issue/Introduction

The JRE that came with the Nexus repository is outdated. Can I update it?

Environment

Release : 6.6

Component : CA RELEASE AUTOMATION CORE

Resolution

The Java that is distributed with the Nexus repository is the latest version that has been fully tested. It is expected that newer releases (of the same version: 1.8) of Java will work, but because they have not been fully tested there might be minor incompatibilities. If there is a problem related to a newer JRE, support may not be able to help resolve the issue.

If you need to update the Java JRE that used used by the Nexus repository, follow the instructions below. If you have problems with the updated JRE it is recommended to revert back to the bundled JRE to determine if the problem is related to the updated JRE. 

 

Instructions for Nexus/Repo Windows:

  1. Stop the "Release Automation Repository Server" service
  2. Rename the existing [Nolio home]\jre folder to [Nolio home]\jre.embedded
  3. Extract the updated JRE that you downloaded in %TEMP%.
  4. Move the extracted jre folder (from step #3) to the [Nolio home] folder. This path should be valid after moving the extracted folder to [Nolio home]: [Nolio home]\jre\bin\java.exe
  5. Start the "Release Automation Repository Server" service

 

Instructions for Nexus/Repo Linux:

  4. Move the extracted jre folder (from step #3) to the [Nolio home] folder. This path should be valid after moving the extracted folder to [Nolio home]: [Nolio home]/jre/bin/java
  5. Start the service
    > ./nolio_repo.sh start
