JDK 11.0.x reboot necessary?

user-e98agMay 4 2023 — edited May 5 2023

Ever since Java JDK 11.0.17 or 18 (I believe) the installer has been requiring a reboot. I don't remember that requirement before. Also at that same time I noticed it started un-installing any previous version, before we had to manually un-install. My question is Java seems to work without a reboot, my site comes up. Is there any reason I can't wait till the next scheduled restart? Is the reboot just to remove misc files from the un-install cleanup?
