We're to a point where we are pretty far behind with our JRE not from a "patching it" standpoint, but with "because we have stuff that uses the older version" point. Lots of different web based apps, and other apps installed make calls to java and we have no idea. Lets say there's 1000+ things that could be using it. Maybe its only 20, we don't truly know.
We met with Oracle this week and they discussed with us a product they have called "Advanced Management Console" and it's hard to see the forest through the trees vs the sales talk. It looks like the core thing this product will do is show us on ANY PC we install their "Agent" on, what's calling each thing java based on any PC. That's huge.
Here's the datasheet on the product: http://www.oracle.com/us/technologies/java/javase-advanced-suite-ds-401373.pdf
Are any of you pulling this off now in LANDesk WITHOUT this tool? Are any of us using this tool from Oracle?
Or is it just a "tool" from Oracle... You know what I mean :>
