Set an environment variable for the Java location

You must install a
JRE
8 (x64) implementation on the server where you will install the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
, and you must have an environment variable that points to the Java home location. When you begin the installation, the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
verifies that it can find Java. If you have installed the
Oracle
Java SE Runtime Environment in the default location, the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
will find it and automatically set the environment variable. If the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
can't find Java, the setup application will stop and you must set an environment variable for the Java location and ensure that the Java bin folder is included in the Path system variable.
For more information on setting up
JRE

Verify that you have installed a supported 64-bit
JDK
on the server where you will be installing the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
