JAVA: SDK: should the SDK be under same user running java apps?

Hello Experts,

in linux, should the java SDK be under same user running java apps?

in other words,

ls -alt /usr/lib/java/jdk<version>
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Mar 2 04:02 bin
.
.

ps -ef | grep user1
user1 96661 123321 0 Feb 26 ? 00:31:42 /usr/lib/java/jdk<version> -xms 128M.... Bootstrap start

see what I mean?
if yes, how come the application is working while having the SDK under root instead of user1?

Thanks for your help....
Regards

The permissions on the JDK: drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Mar 2 04:02 bin

are set so that all users can read and execute the binaries - so that's why user1 can use Java.

If you don't want that - change the permissions (with chmod) so that only root can read and execute the files under the SDK.

But usually you want all users to be allowed to use the base software on a machine, so what you have is a pretty normal setup.

No. Why would you think that? It's a program like any other

Because there are world (others) execute permissions on the executable (java)
