Discoverer 10g with Java8

So we are running Discoverer 10g for a few users, and have many projects in place, and so an upgrade to Discoverer 11g is not a priority at this time. We are currently doing a migration to IE11 and Java8. Is there a workaround to get Discoverer 10g working with Java8 or is our only option to stay on java6 or upgrade to 11g?

    Discoverer 10g is not certified for use with Java 7 or Java 8.  Discoverer's use of Java 8 is only certified with an E-Business Suite (EBS) end user layer.  This certification requires a patch applied to 
      Note 233047.1  (How To Find Oracle BI Discoverer 10g and 11g Certification Information) contains Frequently Asked Questions on certification.

    You would have to upgrade the Discoverer Java on the server if you want this to work. The server is typically installed with Java 6 which is not really compatible with a local Java 8

    If this doesn't work then you need to keep Java 6 locally just for Discoverer. You can have both Java 8 and Java 6 installed at the same time and tell Discoverer that it has to use 6

    Hi jffr363,

    Not sure this patch (patch 20219002) will be useful for the 10g. But i suggest, upgrading to 11g and install the patch. The discoverer will be able to work with all versions of Java from (Java 6 to Java 8 ) without any issues. Make sure you add the url in the Java exception list of the client machine.
