I'd be very grateful for any help anyone can give me on the following.

I have a Windows Server VPS
I want to run a non-UI B4J server app on it

To get this to work I think I need to put the JRE on the VPS
Because of Oracle licence changes I don't want to use their JRE
I understand that the OpenJDK contains the OpenJRE so I'm hoping I can use that instead. Can I?

If so, I saw where Erel speaks of uploading the JRE to Linux servers to a folder of your own choice but
not doing any install.
Is it the same on Windows?
If I upload the OpenJDK folder to somewhere I choose then how does my app know where to find it?

Thank you.

Use the full path name to the location of the java.exe file.
