The next patch from Uniface will add support for OpenJDK as well as Oracle's JRE  - needed for XML transform, Web Request Dispatcher (WRD) and Tomcat. As Oracle has changed its support statement to make future updates to JRE 8 only available to those using it for personal use or with a commercial support contract with Oracle, we must advise customers, without an Oracle support contract and who use this functionality, to update their Uniface installations to OpenJDK. A Technical Article has been published to explain your options and the process required to achieve this update.

During the installation of Uniface on Windows there is an option to use an existing JAVA installation, or for the installer to create a local copy for use by Uniface. The primary reason for this choice is to enable an out-of-the-box experience for the Uniface development environment. For runtime installations,  it is sensible to use a fully installed (and updated) JAVA version.

To continue offering the out-of-the-box experience for Uniface version 10, we will be releasing the next patch as a service pack. The installation will be updated to install OpenJDK as the local installation rather than Oracle's JRE. For new Uniface 9 installations, we recommend installing OpenJDK before installing Uniface and selecting its location as part of the installation process.
