Java and OE12.1

Posted by goo on 12-Feb-2020 14:30

Is it so that we need to preinstall java when installing OE12.1 ? It ask me for the home location for java. That means that java is an additional investment the company needs to do when running OE12.1 ?

Yes, you must install the JDK in advance yourself. This is because Oracle has made Java a paid product. But you can use OpenJDK (Hotspot) instead of Java from Oracle.

Details on the link.

OpenJDK works just fine – we are using it with no issue at all.

Ok, thanks, what about PowerShell? What should be installed?
 
Windows 2016 – server
 
There should be a preinstall too, so that we could get all products needed before doing the installation, if you ask me 😊

OE installer doesn't ask for the PowerShell install location. OE uses the PowerShell version which is available with OS.
