The JDK (Java Development Kit) consists of a runtime environment that "sits on top" of the operating system layer as well as tools and programming that developers need to compile, debug, and run applets and applications written in the Java language. NetX requires the JDK to be installed before it can run. See Supported Platforms for a list of supported JDK versions.
How to download and install the Oracle JDK
Due to recent license changes, we are currently supporting Oracle JDK version 8u201 for use with NetX products. This version can be accessed at Oracle's Java download archive here: https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-archive-javase8-2177648.html
Since installation can be different on each system, please refer to Oracle’s installation guide for your Server's operating system. If you have any questions, or need assistance please contact the support department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to change the version of the JDK that NetX uses
Both of these methods WILL require a restart of NetX in order to take effect.
Open "...Program Files\NetXposure\bin\netxw.exe" as Administrator. Click on the "Java" tab, under "Java Virtual Machine" , update the path to the jvm.dll provided by the new java version. Click Apply.
Update /opt/netx/bin/setenv.sh and replace the "JAVA_HOME=" value with the new value provided by the updated java version.
