Identify Java paid components installed on your device

Here is a detailed step-by-step guide that includes code snippets and example outputs on how to identify if Java or Java paid components are installed on a device:

Step 1: Check if Java is installed

To check if Java is installed on a device, you can use the following command in the terminal:

$ java -version

If Java is installed on the device, this command will display the version of Java installed. If Java is not installed, an error message will be displayed.

Example output:

java version "1.8.0_292" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_292-b10) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.292-b10, mixed mode)

Step 2: Check if Java paid components are installed

To check if Java paid components are installed on a device, you can use the following command in the terminal:

$ java -XshowSettings:properties -version | grep -E '^(sun.|com.)'

If Java paid components are installed on the device, this command will display a list of Java properties, including the properties related to paid components. If there are no paid components installed, the command will return an empty result.

Example output:

sun.boot.library.path = /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_291.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib sun.cpu.endian = little sun.cpu.isalist = com.apple.mrj.application.apple.menu.about.name = JavaAppsun.io.unicode.encoding = UnicodeBig sun.java.command = java -XshowSettings:properties -version sun.java.launcher = SUN_STANDARD sun.jnu.encoding = UTF-8 sun.management.compiler= HotSpot 64-Bit Tiered Compilers sun.os.patch.level = unknown sun.stdout.encoding = UTF-8 sun.stderr.encoding = UTF-8 com.oracle.jvm.trace = false sun.cpu.model = 6sun.arch.data.model = 64 com.oracle.jrockit.version = R28.2.7-7-155314-1.8.0_291-b10 com.sun.management.jmxremote.port = 13192 com.sun.management.jmxremote.authenticate = false sun.java.launcher.pid = 3653 sun.boot.class.path = /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_291.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib/resources.jar:/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_291.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib/rt.jar:/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_291.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib/sunrsasign.jar:/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_291.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib/jsse.jar:/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_291.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib/jce.jar:/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_291.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib/charsets.jar:/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_291.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/lib/jfr.jar:/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_291.jdk/Contents/Home/jre/classes sun.management.jmxremote.ssl = false com.sun.management.jmxremote

For example, if a device has the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files installed, the output of the command may include the following properties:

com.sun.security.enableCRLDP com.sun.security.enableAIAcaIssuers com.sun.net.ssl.checkRevocation com.sun.net.ssl.checkExtendedKeyUsage com.sun.crypto.provider.SunJCE com.sun.net.ssl.trustStore com.sun.security.enableOCSP com.sun.crypto.provider.AES

The com.sun.crypto.provider.SunJCE property indicates that the SunJCE provider is installed, which includes the JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files. This is a paid component that requires a license from Oracle.

Note that the exact properties and keywords may vary depending on the version of Java and the specific paid component installed on the device.
