CA Gen 8.6 requires that the Java EE SDK be installed and Build Tool profile JAVA token LOC.JAVAEE_HOME set to successfully compile some Gen generated Java application types.


Release: 8.6
Component: CGBT


1. LOC.JAVAEE_HOME needs to be set when generating Java server EJBs and the Classic Style Java Proxy. The standard Java Proxy does not use LOC.JAVAEE_HOME.

2. To enable the successful use of Java EE SDK requires the correct setting of the CA Gen 8.6 Build Tool Java token LOC.JAVAEE_HOME.
Download java_ee_sdk-8u1.zip from Oracle page https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/javaee-8-sdk-downloads.html
(Note that the top level folder in the zip file has name "glassfish5").
Unzip the file into the root of the C drive e.g. C:\java_ee_sdk-8u1
To ensure that all required Java classes (jar files) can be correctly located at compile time set Build Tool Profile Java token:
LOC.JAVAEE_HOME = C:\java_ee_sdk-8u1\glassfish5\glassfish
