Applets Already Cached on a Workstation for P6 Take a Long Time to Load During the Initialization Phase (Java Icon With a Scrolling Blue Circle) Before Loading Data (Doc ID 1569917.1)

Last updated on JULY 19, 2017

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management - Version 8.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
When loading an applet in P6 the first time (usually after logging into P6 from a period of inactive usage), the applet takes a great amount of time to initialize (visually it may appear to be a Java Loading icon with a swirling blue loading circle) before the applet loads and the "Loading Data/Processing Data" starts to display.

Note:
This occurs when the JAR file has already been accessed before on the same workstation, so it is not due to an act of re-downloading the JAR to cache on the local machine.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
For the applet to initialize much quicker since it has already been downloaded and cached to the local workstation.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. After some amount of inactivity with P6 usage on a workstation, launch a browser and login to P6
2. Load an applet in P6 (like the EPS page)
3. Note the Actual Behavior above occurring.
