Update JAVA for Confluence

I am running Confluence 5.1.2 which said that it is running JAVA 1.7.0_15.

I have installed the latest version of JDK to c:/software/JAVA/jdk_1.7.0_45 and set JAVA_HOME to this path and restarted the server. Confluence is still showing 1.7.0_15.

How do I get Confluence to pick up the newest version of JAVA?

I have added

SET "JRE_HOME=C:\software\Java\jdk1.7.0_45\jre"

to setenv.bat. The new JDK is not showing up in confluence. Confluence is running as tomcat service in Windows. Does this use the setenv.bat?

Hi Brass,

Please change it via command line.

-Go to the confluence instalation directory and then run the below commond for tomcat 6:


-Now you will get one window and go to Java tab and browse thru jvm.dll like as:jdk1.7.0_45\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll

-Now java class path: browse through bootstrep.jar via confluence-std\bin
