We are pleased to announce that the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.8.0_221 on the JRE 8 codeline is 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 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.

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):

Where are the JRE 8 requirements for EBS documented?

    Using Java Web Start with Oracle E-Business Suite (MOS Note 2188898.1) is no longer available. Is there a new MOS on JWS?

    Brandon - I'm sorry you are having issues. Perhaps you are having a problem with your browser session or MOS account.

    Using Java Web Start with Oracle E-Business Suite (MOS Note 2188898.1) is the correct article. I was able to open this MOS Note from the link in the blog article.
