Whether Java is needed for Pydio application

Please provide the following tags: install / upgrade, package type, server OS, pydio version

We have installed Pydio application in our Unix servers. The server is dedicated for Pydio application. Added to this, we found Java is also installed . My application is running even when there are no current java process is running. My question here is, do I need Java for our Pydio application. I was not sure why Java was installed. Could you please advise on this.

Pydio Version : 6.4.0
Currently we have installed java 1.8.181
Server OS : Linux
Package type : Pydio Community Edition

Thanks in Advance


Could you please specify the distro, version and name of Linux OS?

Hi, You can use yum deplist command:
pydio-plugin-editor-imagick is one of plugin in Pydio. It will be installed if you install pydio-all package.

yum deplist pydio-plugin-editor-imagick => you will see unoconv is one of dependencies
yum deplist unoconv=> libreoffice-core
yum deplist libreoffice-core => java
