BMC - Automated way to update Java path

Bharath Kumar shared this question 4 years ago

Hi Team,

We need to figure out how to dynamicly set JAVA PATH for YF tomcat as this will stop service from starting after a OS patch (where java has changed). Currently JAVA path is set in .bash_profile.

Is there a automated way to update the Java path in tomcat configuration?

Regards,

Bharath

Hi Bharath,

There is no real way to do this via Yellowfin as it simply uses the JAVA_HOME properties either from the environment or as defined in the startup scripts. This is a common problem for all java based applications and requires manual intervention to update this.

A possible way around this might be to create a symlink to the real java version and possibly look for a new Java installation/folder upon starting yellowfin. If it detects this, then swap the symlink around to point to the new Location. It might be a fairly simplistic approach but might achieve what you are look for.

I am not sure if the OS updates log anything as to what they are going to do or have done, but if they do, then you could also search for a LOG entry in relation to JAVA and use this?

I think anyway you look at this, it will require some clever scripting.

Hopefully this will help you to achieve something that could be automated.

Regards,

Paul
