Configuring Cascade to point to a Java installation

In order for Cascade to use a particular Java installation, you'll need to make sure that the boot script is updated accordingly. Follow the instructions below that match your O/S (along with the method you use to start Cascade):

Linux/*nix

  • Edit the file cascade.sh
  • Update the JRE_HOME variable at the top of the script and point it to the new Java installation. Ex.: export JRE_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.8.0_51/jre

Windows (service)

  • Open Windows Explorer
  • Navigate to tomcat/bin within the Cascade installation folder
  • Double-click the file cascadew.exe
  • Click the Java tab
  • In the JVM field, browse to the jvm.dll file within the new Java installation (Ex. path: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_51\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll)
  • Click Apply/OK
  • Start/Restart the service

Windows (command-line)

  • Edit the file cascade.bat
  • Update the JRE_HOME variable at the top of the script and point it to the new Java installation. Ex.: set JRE_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_51\jre
