Sun JRE 1.6.0_30 Certified with Oracle E-Business Suite

Java logo

I'm pleased to let you know that the latest Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_30 (a.k.a. JRE 6u30-b12) is now certified with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12.  

What's new in Java 1.6.0_30?

See the 1.6.0_30 Update Release Notes for details about what has changed in this release.  This release is available for download from the usual Sun channels and through the 'Java Automatic Update' mechanism.

Worried about the 'mismanaged session cookie' issue?

No need to worry -- it's fixed.  To recap: JRE releases 1.6.0_18 through 1.6.0_22 had issues with mismanaging session cookies that affected some users in some circumstances.

The fix for those issues was first included in JRE 1.6.0_23. These fixes will carry forward and continue to be fixed in all future JRE releases.  In other words, if you wish to avoid the mismanaged session cookie issue, you should apply any release after JRE 1.6.0_22:  for example, JRE 1.6.0_23, 1.6.0_24, 1.6.0_25, and 1.6.0_26, and higher.

All JRE releases are certified with EBS upon release

Our standard policy is that all E-Business Suite customers can apply all JRE updates to end-user desktops from JRE 1.6.0_03 and higher.  We test all new JRE releases in parallel with the JRE development process, so all JRE releases are considered certified with the E-Business Suite on the same day that they're released by our Java team. 

You do not need to wait for a certification announcement before applying new JRE releases to your EBS users' desktops.  If you wish, your desktop administrators can enable the Java "Automatic updates" option on your end-users' desktops.

I wasn't able to find any answers to the following questions: Will 1.6 auto update to 1.7? and I have installed 1.7_2 and it does not work with EBS. Isn't 1.7_2 considered an "update" yet it is not certified with EBS yet. Thanks!

Hello, Stephen,

JRE 1.6 is also known as "Java 6." JRE 1.7 is also called "Java 7."

Java 7 is sufficiently different than Java 6 that JRE 1.6.x clients will not automatically update to JRE 1.7. We're certifying JRE 1.7 right now. Until that new certification is complete, E-Business Suite customers should stick with JRE 1.6.

Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates, which I'll post as soon as soon as they're available.

Regards,
Steven

Hello,

I have a problem that occurred back when Java 1.6_19 was released. I am now on 11i, with a desktop client using the Java 30. When I do a File > Expoort, the screen pops up, normally we can hold Ctrl + Alt to get the file to not "disapear." However, that is not working again, any idea if that is Java related? I am on IE 9 and Windows 7. Thanks.

Hi, Chris,

Sorry to hear that you've encountered an issue.

The File>Export functionality works in the latest JRE version, so I suspect that you're encountering a browser setup issue of some sort. I'd recommend reviewing the "Recommended Browsers" note above to see if you've missed a step.

If that doesn't help, your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our specialists engaged.

Regards,
Steven

Hello, I too am encountering the post by Chris on Jan 11. Was there any solution found to this? I tried disabling the next gen plug-in in the java console with no luck.

Chris, did you find a resolution? I too experienced the same behavior.

Steve,
I received an email that another user was having the same issue as me above. However, I have found out that the pop-up will show in the middle screen that says "Important - Closing this window will cause Oracle Forms-based apps to close..."

So it is possible that from the Main Navigation, you click on a form-based Responsibility, the second screen opens, then the third screen opens which is the actual application. If you export from there, the popup to save the export is on that second screen. Sorry Hard to explain over the web.

Hi, Sharon,

Chris has replied separately on this thread, but I don't know whether he actually logged a formal Service Request to investigate this issue. As such, we don't have any insight into the root cause, as we don't know anything about Chris' environment or setup.

Your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our specialists engaged.

Please feel free to forward your Service Request number to me if it gets stuck in the support process for some reason.

Regards,
Steven

It was actually a trusted sites custom IE setting I needed to change. When I read into the discussion links I found it. Thank you both.

Hi, Sharon,

Glad you found the root cause. If the setting isn't documented in our browser configuration documentation listed above, please let me know -- either via a comment here or by logging a formal Service Request.

Regards,
Steven

Hello, Naveen,

I'm sorry to hear that you've encountered an issue with this.

We can provide general conceptual guidance here, but I'm afraid that this blog isn't the best place to get technical support for specific issues like the one that you're working through.

Your best bet would be to log a formal Service Request via My Oracle Support (formerly Metalink) to get one of our specialists engaged.

Regards,
Steven
