We are pleased to announce that the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.8.0_211 and 1.8.0_212 on the JRE 8 codeline are now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2.
This article answers some questions you may have on the subject.
Should I use the Java Critical Patch Update (CPU) 1.8.0_211 or the Java Patch Set Update (PSU) 1.8.0_212?
We strongly recommend you use the latest Java CPU for your release family, in this case JRE 1.8.0_211. However, some of you may have a specific need to use a Java PSU, in this case JRE 1.8.0_212.
For our detailed recommendations on this topic, refer to the following question in our recently published My Oracle Support note, FAQ: Essentials of Java Usage in Oracle E-Business Suite (MOS Note 2510500.1):
Should I use Java Web Start or the Java Plug-in with this JRE update?
While we strongly recommend that you migrate to Java Web Start now, using Java Web Start is not a prerequisite for using this Java CPU. You should uptake this latest Java CPU regardless of whether you are currently using Java Web Start or Java Plug-in on your client tier.
How do I get support adopting this latest Java CPU?
If you are using Java Web Start and require assistance with applying this CPU, you can log a service request for assistance from the Java Support organization.
For those of you still in transition to Java Web Start, refer to the following in our recently published My Oracle Support note, FAQ: Essentials of Java Usage in Oracle E-Business Suite (MOS Note 2510500.1):
