While it is true that fewer and fewer web applications require Java, they are still widely used. And if there is something that characterizes Java is the solidity and stability but also the consumption of resources. In this sense, the same web browsers are consuming more and more resources thanks to the extensions and their design. So, if you are running a Java application on the web and it is heavy the java plugin will consume more and more disk and can cause a problem. That’s why, in this post, I will show you limit disk usage by the Java web plugin in the web browser.

The Java control panel

The Java Control Panel is a small application built into Java that allows you to control the behavior of the Java web plugin. It has several tabs with different options according to our needs.

An example of the utility of this utility is that with it, we can use a proxy only for the Java web plugin. This way, we won’t affect our main connection. On the other hand, we can also define which JRE to use if we have several installed.

Besides all this, this utility allows you to update the plugin frequently. And of course, it allows limiting the use of the disk by the plugin.

Let us do it.

Limit the disk usage by the Java web plugin

The Java Control Panel comes when Java is installed on the computer. However, it does not have a launcher in the main menu itself. So maybe it’s a bit hard to locate it.

To launch it, open a terminal emulator and run this command:

:~$ jcontrol

1.- Java control panel
1.- Java control panel

Next, go to the web settings tab. And next to the Temporary files settings tab.

2.- Limit eh disk usage by the Java plugin
2.- Limit eh disk usage by the Java plugin

There in the Disk space section, you can define how much the plugin will use the disk. Vital if you have little space or if you want to minimize the disk reading.

Conclusion

Limiting disk usage by the Java web plugin is easy and can save a lot of resources when running Java applications on the web. With the passage of time, it is less and less common to find one, but there is always one on the market.
