JRE 1.8.0_281 Certified with EBS Releases 12.2 and 12.1

Tahir Ahmad, and contributing author: Elke Phelps

We are pleased to announce that the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.8.0_281 (8u281) on the JRE 8 codeline is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2.  This update is available with Patch 32140627

This article answers some questions you may have on the subject.

Is it a requirement to use Java Web Start with this JRE update?

While it is not a prerequisite to use Java Web Start for this latest Java CPU, please take another note of our previous guidance about moving to Java Web Start right away, and particularly ahead of September 2020.
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.

Note:  September 2020 was an important deadline for you if you are still using the Java Plug-in. Oracle Java team's plans to continue shipping the components required to launch Java applets on Internet Explorer 11 using Java Plug-in, and Oracle E-Business Suite Support team's ability to help customers still using Java Plugin are confirmed only through September 2020. Beyond this date, it will be increasingly complicated to receive any new fixes for Oracle E-Business Suite issues specific to Java Plug-in.

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):
