Use latest java runtime environment with ArcSight ESM
I was wondering if there is any way for ArcSight ESM to use the lattest JRE version.
I have tried modifying the "arcsight.bat" file setting the JAVA_HOME to the latest java i got installed in my system (jre1.8.0_91) but when I launch the "Console.exe" file ArcSight does not start at all and shows no error.
The reason why I want to use the latest java version is basically security. Whatever vulnerability has the ArcSight Java version, it may be used to exploit ArcSight.
Has anyone being able to make ArcSight use the latest JRE and not the one installed by default?
It is neither supported nor works. there are major compatibility issues between different Java versions. We update our products to resolve security issues and if there are open ones that you are concerned with, please open a ticket with support to get a status update or a solution.
