I want to install Java 7 Server SE JRE on a Windows server box. Reading through the instructions here:
It says to: The Server JRE files are installed in a directory called jdk1.7.0_ in the current directory.
However, there's a lot of stuff in that tar file. I just want to use the jre folder right under jdk1.7.0_.
Can I just copy over /jdk1.7.0_/jre and it's subfolders? Are there any downstream impacts I should be aware of, in terms of security and performance? Or any other issues besides the loss of functionality?
Ultimately, I want to point Tomcat to jre/bin/server/jvm.dll.
