This note will provide the steps to run the WCC Administration Applications (Admin Applets) available in the Web Interface via Browsers.   Browsers have removed standards based plugin support (eliminating Java plugin).  Information about JNLP Java Web Start an be found here:  https://java.com/en/download/faq/java_webstart.xml

Important:   Read the following document for a complete understanding of Admin Applets and Configuration of Applets:  How to Configure/Modify WebCenter Content (WCC) 11g-12c Local User Authentication ("sysadmin"), Configure and Run Admin Applications (Applets) from Command Line (StandAlone) (Doc ID 1265076.1)

Browsers

Dropped support for NPAPI plugins (JAVA) and now support Java Network Launch Protocol (JNLP)

11g/Early 12c

Removing the standards based plugin support resulted in issues with all versions of WCC.  Admin Applets in 11g and early releases of 12c may not launch from browser at all as newer browsers have been moved to Java Network Launch Protocol (JNLP). 

Alternatively, customers can run the Admin Tools as standalone Applications.
