Specify the Java installation you want JSCAPE MFT Server to use
Posted by , Last modified by on 01 September 2016 10:01 PM

There can be instances when you'll need to specify which Java installation JSCAPE MFT Server should be running on. 

For Linux installations

In Linux, go to the JSCAPE MFT Server installation directory and edit the script named "server". 

Uncomment the INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME_OVERRIDE and specify like so:


Note that the Java home directory is the parent directory of the "bin" subdirectory. The common mistake is that "bin" is included in the path.

So, for example:

INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME_OVERRIDE=/usr/java/jre1.8xxx   ----> This is correct

INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME_OVERRIDE=/usr/java/jre1.8xxx/bin ----> This is wrong

For Windows installations

In Windows, go to this directory:

[JSCAPE MFT Server installation directory]/.install4j/ ,

edit the file named:


and replace the existing entry with the full path of your desired Java installation. For example,

C:\Program Files\java\jre1.8xxx
