  • We stopped updating JAVA via patching for several reasons. the primary one is not all our applications could support the latest versions of JAVA when they were released.

We started to create Managed Distributions for each version of JAVA so that when a location needed a specific version, we can just apply the label to them for it to install. We added several switches to our installation line for silent install, prevent auto updates, strip old versions away, etc. Here is the switches we use if it is helpful:
