Updating the Java SDK

2010-04-21
If you want to update the Java SDK you use to run QueueMetrics, it is very easy to do it.

Download and install a new version of Java SDK (from SUN, it's better - do not use GCJ).

You can install it anywhere on your system - like imagine you install it as/opt/java/jdk1.6.0b7.

As QueueMetrics accesses its own Java SDK under a symbolic link placed at /usr/local/queuemetrics/java, it is trivial to change that to use a different SDK.
cd /usr/local/queuemetrics
rm -f java
ln -s /opt/java/jdk1.6.0b7 java

then restart QueueMetrics.

To check that the new Java is working, go to the License page and check the Java version that it is using.
