Today I had yet another occasion to build up a Windows workstation from scratch.  When I got to the step of installing Octave (4.2.1) the installer told me it couldn't fine a Java JRE, even though I have Java 9.0.1 installed, as evidenced by the output of

> java -version

Is that anything for me to worry about?  At first glance, it looks normal (working GUI, working plots).

Hi there Daryl,

There should be (mostly) no issue. We ran Octave 4.2.1 on super computers for months without Java due to a broken link. You obviously however, can’t use Java based components.


I had a patch made at one point to let you change the Java directory at run time (rather now it is set at compile time afaik) but I don’t think anyone was interested in it.
