(Doc ID 2392656.1)
Last updated on FEBRUARY 20, 2019
Applies to:Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 8 to 8
Information in this document applies to any platform.
On Java 8u131 and 8u144 versions, even if tracker is disabled (by default), ".oracle_jre_usage" directory is created in user home directory. This is not the expected behavior.
If tracker is disabled (by default), ".oracle_jre_usage" directory should not be created in user home directory.
With Java SE 7 versions, ".oracle_jre_usage" is not created.
This issue is not seen using Java 8u51 and 7u79.
This issue is also observed using Oracle JRE 8u144-b32 (at time of writing).
