Updating Java Version for existing Bamboo Instance

We're looking to update java versions on the machines running our Bamboo instance.  Are there any things we should be looking out for or struggles anybody encountered, or was it as easy as it seems like it'd be?

Well, one person's experience is anecdotal, but I had no issues.

 

Running Ubuntu, this is pretty much exactly what we did, besides the new AWS image stuff...

sudo su -
cd /home/ubuntu/
mkdir /opt/jdk-8u45
tar -xvf jdk-8u45-linux-x64.tar.gz -C /opt/jdk-8u45/
cd /opt/jdk-8u45/
mv jdk1.8.0_45/* ./
rmdir jdk1.8.0_45/
mkdir -p /usr/lib/jvm/jdk-8u45
cp -r /opt/jdk-8u45/* /usr/lib/jvm/jdk-8u45/
update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/lib/jvm/jdk-8u45/bin/java 1
update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/javac javac /usr/lib/jvm/jdk-8u45/bin/javac 1
update-alternatives --config java
update-alternatives --config javac
vim /etc/profile
added to /etc/profile:
export JAVA_HOME="/usr/lib/jvm/jdk-8u45"
export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
source /etc/profile

Hello Erik,

Thank you for your inquire.

As per description provided, I am not sure if you are referring to Bamboo (behind the firewall) or Bamboo (cloud).

However, in case you are running – Bamboo (behind the firewall) – under a secure protocol, please make sure of adding the certificates required by your instance so you will continue on hitting https://bamboo.domain

Kind regards,
Rafael P. Sperafico
