What Types of Applications Are Affected by Java DRS and What JRE Versions Get Launched for Plugin vs. RIA

(Doc ID 2287122.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 17, 2017

Applies to:

Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


  1. Does Deployment Rule Set (DRS) control Desktop Swing application versions?
  2. The jp2Launcher.exe is running on Java SE 8 and then calling JRE 7. Is this normal for DRS to run JRE 1.8 and then call JRE 1.7 (where 1.7 is the DRS-specified version for the applet)?
