IMAGINE may install an outdated version of Java
The ERDAS IMAGINE installation includes a version of Java that is the most recent at the time of release. When the Java version upgrades, and if IMAGINE’s version of Java is not the most current, some customers may have concerns or requirements related to system vulnerability for the installed version of Java.
Only two features of ERDAS IMAGINE use Java, the Geospatial Explorer and the Bayesian Network capability in IMAGINE Objective. If you delete the Java version that is installed by IMAGINE (JRE directory under $IMAGINE_HOME), Geospatial Explorer will no longer work. IMAGINE Objective will look for another Java location and continue to work. IMAGINE Objective will look in the following locations: $IMAGINE_HOME, if deleted, then %JRE_HOME%, then %JAVA_HOME%
