    • Explanation:
      Hide

      The reason for the latter restriction is that EXAplus is using a class that SUN removed in that update; we will fix this problem with EXAplus 4.2.12 (and 5.0). See also EXASOL-1370

      Summary

      To get EXAplus back to work copy a fomer version of Java to the
      EXAplus directory <EXAplus directory>/jre/<old Java version>.
      If the sub-directory 'jre' doesn't exists simple create it.

      You can find older Java versions under the Java default directory <c:\Program Files\Java> or download one from the official site
      https://www.java.com

      Detailled example for windows

      1. Download the latest working Java SE Runtime Environment (which is version 7u60):
      2. Unpack (e.g. unzip and and untar it) one of these archives (according to your cpu architecture).
      3. Copy the unpacked folder jre1.7.0_60 to C:\path_to_exaplus\EXAplus\
      4. Rename the folder to jre. So, you should find java.exe here: C:\path_to_exaplus\EXAplus\jre\bin\java.exe

      Further details

      If we restrict the possibilities to SUN's java, then we do support versions 1.6.0_17 to 1.6.0_23 and all Java 7 versions prior to update 65.
