Understanding the Impact of Newer Java Versions on AutoVue Client/Server Deployment
By Graham McKendry on Jan 02, 2014
For AutoVue – specifically AutoVue Client/Server Deployment in which the most common client implementation is a Java applet – certain JRE updates have notable impact. In these cases, all efforts are made to fully detail the impact through alerts in the My Oracle Support knowledge base. In addition, when necessary product patches will be provided by Oracle to address issues between the AutoVue client and the newer JRE versions.
The two most recent examples are detailed in the following knowledge base articles – recommended reading for all AutoVue Client/Server Deployment administrators:
- KM Note 1553322.1 – Java SE 7u21 Changes to the Java Browser Plug-in Behavior, Getting Message: "Security Warning - Do you want to run this application?" When Using AutoVue Client/Server Deployment With Java–based Customizations
- KM Note 1594439.1 – AutoVue Client Usage with Java 7u45
In addition to being posted as ‘Alerts’ in the knowledge base so that they show up directly on your My Oracle Support dashboard (if configured properly), these types of alerts are typically also posted through the Oracle Support team’s quarterly newsletter.
