Is it possible to upgrade or remove the java components installed in $ORACLE_HOME (j2ee, javavm, jdbc, jdev, jdk, jlib)? Our security department is pushing to have all occurrences of java either upgraded to java 8 or removed, if not in use. For this particular database, ojvm is not installed. The version installed with is java 5.

./java -version

java version "1.5.0_51"

Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_51-b10)

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.5.0_51-b10, mixed mode)
