Changing the JRE
Use the procedures below to configure the Web Server and User Manager to use a different Java Runtime Environment (JRE).
- Each time you upgrade your JRE, you need to apply the unlimited strength policy files to the new JRE.
- Each time you upgrade Reflection for Secure IT Web Edition or apply a hotfix, you need to repeat the changes to the properties files.
Apply the Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files to your JRE
- Download the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files from Oracle. Uncompress and extract the downloaded file.
Note: Be sure to download the correct policy files for your version of Java; version 7 updates(1.7.x) use a different set of files than version 6 (1.6.x)
- Locate the following two policy files.
- Replace the existing limited strength policy files (located in <java-folder>\lib\security) with the unlimited strength policy files.
Note: You need to repeat this procedure each time you upgrade your JRE. If you use automatic updates, JRE updates will continue to use the same default folde r(C:\Program Files\Java\jre7), and each new version will overwrite any changes you made to the prior version. Java Development Kit (JDK) updates, which include the JRE, use a different folder for each update (for example C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_07).
Edit the properties files and restart the servers
- Locate the configuration properties file (container.conf) for both the User Manager and the Web Server:
- Open each of these files in a text editor and locate the wrapper.java.command parameter. Edit this parameter to specify the full path to the java command (without the .exe extension) in your JRE. For example:
- Restart both servers. (Start and Stop the User Manager Server, Start and Stop the Transfer Client Web Server)
Note: You need to repeat this procedure each time you upgrade Reflection for Secure IT Web Edition or apply a hotfix.
