Re: That time of year again
Well when you are forced to install applications for your users that require Java, you have no choice. Not to mention all the products (like HP switches and Dell DRACs) that require it for the web interface to function. So while I'd love to retire Java once and for all for my entire network, I cannot. Unfortunately. As every machine has *at least* one thing that requires it.
Could they make the licensing requirements any more confusing though? The installer is now warning about Jan 2019 being the cutoff for security updates, so this is the first I've even heard of any of this. So now I need to figure out which versions are installed companywide and figure out what I need to replace existing versions with to ensure updates. And when your patch management / desktop auditing system just happens to be malfunctioning, that's really, really going to suck.
