Java is currently available from the command-line but not yet supported for web applications.
Choosing a version of Java
You can choose among multiple versions of Java, depending on which silk platform version your account is hosted on:
|Silk platform||Java version||Command-line path|
|silkv1||1.7 (IBM, default)||/etc/alternatives/java_sdk_1.7.0/bin/java|
|silkv2||1.8 (IBM, default)||/etc/alternatives/java_sdk_1.8.0/bin/java|
If you need to switch Java versions, you can do so by creating or editing your
.silk.ini file (for example
~/www-root/.silk.ini) and adding the
version to the
[java] version = 11
Valid version choices are
default, any of the versions listed in the table
newest (which provides the newest available on the system).
