Windows Vista Client Certification for Release 11i (Update #1)

[Nov 8, 2007 Update: Vista is now certified with IE 7 for E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12. See this article for full details.]

Resisting the almost-overwhelming temptation to editorialize about Microsoft Windows Vista itself, I'm going to shackle myself to answering the simple (and increasingly common) question, "Will the E-Business Suite Release 11i be certified with Vista?"
We do have plans to certify Windows Vista desktop clients with Release 11i. We are evaluating the feasibility of two different certifications released on separate schedules:
- Certification of JInitiator running with Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.x on Windows Vista desktops
- Certification of the native Sun Java plug-in running on Windows Vista desktops
If you're coming to the conclusion that everything in this article is subject to change, you'd be correct.
Keep your eyes on this space. Once we see the final versions of these products, I'll post updates on our certification plans here.
