Where we are deploying ES, it is required to have the JRE automatically update. But the users don't want to have to manually change java_home every time it gets stale.
The deployment is on Windows.
Would it cause any problems if we simply edited the startup bat files to remove the java_home check and change "%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java" to simply "java" so it picks up the latest one?
What if we setup ES as a service?
