We are excited to announce that Java Management Service (JMS) now supports the Windows operating system. JMS is an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) native service that helps users observe and manage Java Runtimes and applications on-premise or on cloud. JMS can track and report Java usage on-premise (desktops, laptops, and servers), on OCI, and on third-party cloud services. It monitors the Java Development Kit (JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE).

JMS launched in June 2021 with support for Linux. As of September 2021, JMS supports the following operating systems:

Operating System


Windows (NEW)

2019 (64 bit), 2016 (64 bit), 2012 R2 (64 bit), 10 (64 bit)

Oracle Linux

6 (64 bit), 7 (64 bit), 8 (64 bit)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux

6 (64 bit), 7 (64 bit), 8 (64 bit)


6 (64 bit), 7 (64 bit)

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server

12 (64 bit), 15 (64 bit)











In addition, this update streamlines the onboarding steps for new JMS users by providing them with a wizard to configure the prerequisite OCI resources to get started. Refer to the Checking Required OCI Resources section of the JMS documentation for more details.

JMS provides a single pane of glass to manage Java deployments across the enterprise, answering questions such as:

  • What are all the Java versions installed on my environment?
  • What versions of Java are running in development and production?
  • Which JDK distribution is each of these using?
  • Are there any unexpected Java applications being used?
  • Are all my installed Java versions up to date with the latest security patches?

JMS is available to Oracle Java SE and Java SE Desktop subscribers as well as to users running on OCI services that permit access to the underlying operating system. Customers running JMS are billed only for storage usage beyond the free tier.
