Primavera P6 EPPM and Java Plug-in Support
Oracle is planning to deprecate the Java browser plugin in Java 9 (JDK and JRE).
- Deprecation is a warning for developers to stop using this technology.
- JRE 9 will continue to provide the Java Plugin and support launching applets on browsers that still offer standard plugin support.
- Migrating from Java Applets to Plugin-Free Java Technologies White Paper
- Moving to a Plugin-Free Web from the Java Platform Group, Product Management blog
- JDK 9 and the Java Plugin
Starting with P6 EPPM r15, alternate technology (HTML5) has been implemented for many applets in the P6 user interface (UI) and will continue until the P6 UI is no longer java dependent (where all applets are converted to HTML5); This will occur prior to an upcoming release of Java where the deprecated plugin technology is removed.
Starting with P6 EPPM r17, majority of the areas within P6 which require the Java plugin have been converted to HTML5 and now comes with an administrative option to disable all applets.
If you are using a release of P6 EPPM which requires Java plugin support to load applets, you should remain on Java 9 (when released) or lower versions which have been tested with P6 EPPM. Refer to the Primavera EPPM Oracle Technology Network for the tested JRE versions of your P6 EPPM release.
