I would like to update the Java version used by Mathmematica 10 from 1.7.x to 1.8.x/ Is it possible without installing Mathematica 11?

I have the latest Java on my system, but Mathematica 10 uses an old one.

You may use ReinstallJava with the CommandLine option.


This information is not on ReinstallJava's documentation page but in the Calling Java from the Wolfram Language guide under the Launching the Java Runtime | Controlling the Command Used to Launch Java section.

Hope this helps.
