I am trying to get the jre-8u231-windows-x64.exe file to update the Java 1.8.0_u221 on my CF servers but I am not seeing it anywhere on this page. Anyone thoughts?

Scroll down to JAVA SE 8, look in the table below on the left, near the bottom. 

 

jdk-8u231-windows-x64.exe (Size 215.23 MB)

 

Is that what you are looking for?

NM.. didn't see the jre, not jdk..

 

UPDATE:  Just noticed that jre is on the right side of the table.

 

V/r,

Thanks I wanted to see if they have the .exe file instead of me having to unzip the .tar.gz file.

That's bizarre.  Only thing I can think of is look for a "Contact Us" link on the Oracle page and report it.

Guys, even oracle doesn't offer an exe for the server jre. See https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/server-jre8-downloads-2133154.html.

 

Kevin, I realize you may have a simple preference for the server jre. Perhaps it's "what you've always used".

 

But to be clear, you can use the jdk. It's been offered and supported by (even often recommended by) Adobe. So if you have some feeling that it's "not what you should be using, I hope the above may help. If not, let us know why you'd avoid it--especially as it solves this problem for you.

Hey Charlie,

 

Thanks for the feedback. When I update Java in the CF servers I just had a better experience using the jre files because it automatically replaces the java that is currently installed when you run the installer. Also JDK was not needed in order for our app to work so I have never installed it. I am unfamiliar with installing the jdk files in the CF servers. Can you point me to the right direction on how to manully install it over JRE that is currently installed?

Hi Kevin_FSU,

To manually install the JDK8u231 for use with ColdFusion, follow these steps:

1) Download the JDK8u231 executable from any of the links provided in this thread;

2) Launch the file and install it, accepting the defaults. The JDK will then be installed to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_231;

3) Verify that the JRE folder is located at C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_231\jre;

4) Open, in your particular server environment, the folder located at {COLDFUSION_INSTALLATION_DIRECTORY}\{INSTANCENAME}\bin (for example, in my case, this path is C:\ColdFusion11\cfusion\bin);

5) Make a back-up copy of the file jvm.config, say, jvm.configBACKUP. 

6) Within the file, use the symbol # to comment out the line that defines the variable java.home. Define in the next line a new java.home variable, giving it the value of the path to the JRE folder in step 3). For example, in my case, these changes are:    

 

 # java.home=C:\\ColdFusion11\\jre
java.home=C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk1.8.0_231\\jre

 

Leave the rest of the file's content intact, and save the file as jvm.config in the same bin directory [as in step 4)];

7) Restart the ColdFusion instance (as a Windows service). The instance should automatically run on JRE version 1.8.0_231.
