[frs-389] Manually uninstalling FusionReactor

Manually uninstalling FusionReactor from your application server is as simple as it is manually installing, but the process is reversed.

Typically uninstalling FusionReactor is a matter of removing 1 or 2 arguments from your JVM startup arguments. The procedure in general is:

  • Stop your application server
  • Remove the -agentpath:<…fusionreactor native library…> if present from your JVM startup arguments
  • Remove the -javaagent:<…fusionreactor.jar> if present from your JVM startup arguments
  • Start your application server.

If you are experiencing startup issues such as your server won't start after installing FusionReactor, they may be due to the -agentpath:<…fusionreactor native library…>. This argument refers to a native library that must exist and must match your Operating System, installed libraries and the 32/64bit nature of the JVM you are using. Removing only the -agentpath and restarting the server will typically allow you to still use FusionReactor, just without the Production debugger capability. The -agentpath argument is not essential for the normal operation of FusionReactor.
