Users who access Oracle Virtual Desktop Infrastructure or Sun Ray Server environments via Oracle Virtual Desktop Client (OVDC) v3.2 have reported a variety of problems when using Java 8.


Oracle Java 8 is now officially supported for use with the latest maintenance release OVDC 3.2. 

Note: Oracle Desktop Virtualization team will not be able to test each version of Java 8 with the latest maintenance release OVDC 3.2.  It is recommended that customers test before using the latest maintenance release OVDC 3.2 in production.  Oracle will accept new problem reports.  This does not guarantee that Oracle would be able to provide fixes for all Java 8 related issues.  

 To receive the latest maintenance release OVDC 3.2, please open a Service Request using My Oracle Support portal.  Indicate if you need it for one of the Support Installation Platforms.  The latest version is 3.2.0_37 for both Windows and Linux supported installation platforms.  Make sure to review the versions of Operating Systems that have been tested with and are supported.  Please see details below under Contacts.
