The BoKS Control Center package includes a JRE which is installed during installation. Below are instructions for how to replace the current JRE with the latest JRE from Oracle.

  1. Stop BCC.
  2. Download latest Java Runtime (JRE) from Oracle and unpack to a directory of your choice, for example /opt/java.
  3. Download "Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files for JDK/JRE" for the JRE version you installed in the first step from Oracle. Apply it to the JRE installation by following the instructions from Oracle. This is required to be able to use encryption keys longer than 128 bits.
  4. Replace the BCC original JRE with the following steps (as the bcc user):
    $ cd /opt/bccps$ rm jre$ ln -s /opt/java/jre1.8.0_25 jre
  5. Start BCC.
