JRE 8 support for OC Client in Windows

    Hi all,

     

    Release Notes talks about JRE 7 for OC Client in Windows:

         Spectrum 9.4: Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.7.0_60 or later

         Spectrum 9.3: Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.7.0_21 or later

     

    With "later" means JRE 8 too?

     

    Regards

    Hi Jose,

     

    OneClick ships with a specific Java JRE and JDK version. All OneClick clients require this JRE version, which is available from the OneClick home page.

     

    Java 8 will be supported in Spectrum 10.0 (Solaris is an exception though )

     

    Regards,

    Lakshmi.

    JRE version 8 will indeed work with OneClick on Spectrum version 9.3 and 9.4. I've been running on JRE 8 (on Windows 7) for quite some time with no issues.

    There are some things you need to do to allow it to work.

     

    1) in the Spectrum OneClick Administration>OneClick Client Configuration page, make sure you have enabled the latest version with the "+" (to "Allow new versions*") and save.

    2) If you need the JCE Unlimited Strength Files for JRE version 8, you can download them from Oracle using the following link:

    Regards,

    The biggest issue we have with Java 8 is other non Spectrum applications – many do not work at all with Java 8.

     

    I have been simply copying Java8 onto laptops and launching Spectrum 10 via a script that contains:

     

    D:\java8\bin\javaws http://10.73.1.90:8080/spectrum/oneclick.jnlp

     

    This works but is not seamless to the user base
