Symptoms

When installing Oracle Insurance Data Foundation (OIDF) 8.0 in an environment with Java 8, following the instructions in "Oracle Financial Services Insurance Data Foundation Installation Manual Release 8.0.0.0.0 Java 7 and Java 8", you get the following error running the Schema Creator utility with the silent option:

$ ./osc.sh -s

Error: - Make sure Java version is 1.7. Use java -version to check.

Java Validation Completed. Status : FAIL

You confirmed Java 8 is installed successfully on the server using the "java -version" command.

As a result of the error, the schema creation process fails.  You do not understand why the error occurs because, as stated in the installation guide, OIDF 8.0 is certified with Java 8.
