General J2EE: Multiply user using the same JDK

  1. Multiply user using the same JDK (1 messages)

    I have been wondering if multiply users could us the same copy of the jdk (over a network share for example). This would ensure that all users have the same version of the complier and allow easy updates for all programers in an organisation. (Also it make setting up a standard development environment very easy, assuming network shares where the same)

    Has anyone tried this?
    Would there be any problems?
    Has anyone thought of a reason why you should do it?

    All comments welcome.

    In house we do exactly that. One central jdk library on a network drive and multiple users running off it. No problems whatsoever.
