Summary0002280: Service stops working after upgrading Java
DescriptionAfter upgrading the version of Java on Windows, the SymmetricDS service does not start. The SymmetricDS service is installed in the service manager using a full path to java.exe, and when the path changes from one version to another, it can no longer run java.exe. The service manager requires a full path and cannot use environment variables.

The workaround is to re-install the SymmetricDS service:

sym_service uninstall
sym_service install
Additional InformationWe could provide a runjava.exe to the service manager. It would use the registry to find the current version of Java to run, otherwise try searching the PATH environment variable.
TagsNo tags attached.

Looks like you can set on modern versions of Windows and it will search the PATH variable to find the executable.

Current fix is to use a symbolic link maintained by Oracle's Java installer in C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath\java.exe. If we find the symlink, we'll configure it in conf/sym_service.conf.
