We haven't received a lot of responses to our informal survey about your plans for upgrading to Microsoft Windows Vista. However, the requests for updates on our pending Vista certification are gradually becoming more commonplace, so here's a quick summary of where we are today for Release 11i and 12 certification of that desktop client.
In the process of our testing, we've identified a Sun J2SE bug that affects E-Business Suite environments for Vista deployments. This is a critical issue, unfortunately, and we're working with Sun to get this into a future J2SE release. As of today, we don't have a firm schedule for the next J2SE release containing this fix. As a result, we don't have a firm schedule for the completion of our Vista certifications for either Apps 11i or 12 right now, either.
I'll continue to post updates on this certification and the configurations that we expect to support as soon as I have more details that I can share here. Stay tuned...
