About JDK in OpenEdx

Hi everyone,
which parts of openedx actually uses the JDK installed with edx/configuration? with reason to know if the JDK installed by the JDK role in edx/configuration(and the role itself) is actually used and necessary.

Hey @alfred!

AFAIK, the most common use case for java in Open edX is Elasticsearch, which in turn powers most of the searching features in the platform.
