How can the embedded Java version be upgraded independently in the CommandCentral Storage Unix product from Veritas?

Problem

Java is embedded within the Commandcentral Storage (CCS) application and requires manual steps to upgrade to work with the application.

Error Message

There are many scans that can alert to vulnerabilities in a Java / JRE version and a patch would be required to upgrade the CCS application to the latest available Java version from Oracle.

Cause

Java / JRE is embedded within the CCS application and the installer for Java updater updates a standalone installation

Solution

Supported OS:
This version of the JRE is supported on the Oracle Solaris 10 Update 9 or later OS.
