  • Java package for a particular OS and architecture can be set as preferred. The preferred java package can be installed on multiple agents using the bulk actions menu.
  • Removal of unused java packages on multiple agents is possible.
  • Support for compact agents for Windows. Compact agents are required for Java package management.
See documentation, Managing Java packages on an agent and Managing Java packages on agents in bulk.
