How to configure java in streamserve control center

In some senarios we want to call external jar files via streamserve direclty . By doing that we can extending the functionally . There is a  nice article about calling java programs throguh streamserve in streamshare by Stefan Cohen. please read it . it explains in details the process of calling the jar file .
So for that as a prerequisite we need to configure java in control center . Even though control center admin guide has been explained the process, i thought its worth the explain here again with pictures.
First install the java.
Right click on the application what ever you want to configure java.
Then change vender to the Oracle .Thats all for the control center .
Then we need to set STRS_JVM and STRS_JAVA_HOME variables in .environment file so for that navigate to the streamserver installation folder .
In my case its like below
C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenText\StreamServe\Applications\StreamServer\5.6.1\Server\bin and open .environment file under admin mode. Other wise it will not allow to save.
Set STRS_JVM  and  STRS_JAVA_HOME accroding to the your java installtion .
We are done now . then resrat the service. if there are no issues service will be started .other wise errors will be deplayed on strs_boot.log file .

Enable log in streamserve(dsrv.log)

In some senarios control center application log file (dsrv.log) missing . dsrv.log is very important to the mom developer as it contains the all the project related errors, warning and information .without that very hard to do the developments .
In order to display dsrv log we should activate logging  in the relevent platform file .
Go the relevent platform in the design center .
right click on the platform and go to the configure platform option.
Here after below dialog will be displayed . under log tab check the enable logging check box and there are fiew other options whci you can configure .
You can define the name for log file and specifiy the log level as well.
If these setting are ok drsv log should be diplayed on your control center .
Apart from above fact there may be few another cases where dsrv log not displayed in the control center . please refer the below url for that .(from steamshare forum)
