Hello,

I am planning to implement 2 tasks on Oracl ebs11i, version 11.5.10.2

1. Upgrade Oracle Discoverer 4i to Oracle Discoverer 10.1.2, using note Using Discoverer 10.1.2 with Oracle E-Business Suite 11i (Doc ID 313418.1)

2. Upgrade jre to 1.8.* version, using note Deploying JRE (Native Plug-in) for Windows Clients in Oracle E-Business Suite 11i (Doc ID 290807.1)

My concern is will Discoverer version 10.1.2  will work with JRE version 1.8.*?

In note Deploying JRE (Native Plug-in) for Windows Clients in Oracle E-Business Suite 11i (Doc ID 290807.1) there is part where some options for discoverer upgrade but i really do not understand what is meant by that:

This are headings for jre discoverer from the note above:

Discoverer with JRE 1.8

Discoverer with JRE 1.7

Discoverer with JRE 1.6

I i could not find anywhere if it possible for Discoverer 10.1.2 to work with JRE 1.8 which eBS will use?

Regards,
Savo

    Hello Savo,

    No, Discoverer 10g will not work with JRE 8.  It will not work with JRE 7 either.  The first version of Discoverer that will work with JRE 8 is 11.1.1.7.0 WITH the certification patch applied.  See Note 233047.1, look for Java 8.
    Please be aware that Discoverer 11.1.1.7.0 was certified using a very early JRE 8, update 25.  Some of the higher JRE 8 updates cause issues with Discoverer.  Be sure to test thoroughly the later updates.  There will be no new releases or bug fixes for Discoverer.  It is under sustaining support.  Please read the Important Information below.
    Also be aware that Note 313418.1 is no longer published, as Premier support for 10g ended in 2011.

    --- Important Information
    Premier support for Discoverer 11g ended June 2014.  Version 11.1.1.7.0 is the final / terminal release of the Discoverer product.  Discoverer is under sustaining support, which limits our ability to assist you.  Please review the alert section at the bottom of this update.
    Discoverer is at end of life.  Any software update (OS, browser, Java, WLS, EBS, etc.) released after June 2014 has not specifically been certified or tested and may cause issues for Discoverer.  Therefore, it is important to maintain a stable Discoverer environment for as long as it takes to move to OBIEE or other replacement.

    Hi Sharon,

    Thank you for the detailed answer. Most probably we will go first with the Oracle Discoverer 4i to Oracle Discoverer 10.1.2 upgrade, and then think about moving to last version of Discoverer 11.1.1.7. Client's only reason for moving to the Discoverer 10.1.2 is that currently they have problem installing Discoverer 4i clients on Windows 10 operating system.

    Regards,

    Savo

    Thank you for your reply.  However, there is no version of Discoverer client (Discoverer Administrator or Discoverer Desktop) that is certified for use on Windows 10 operating system.  Windows 10 was released after Premier support for Discoverer had already ended.  See Note 233047.1  - How To Find Oracle BI Discoverer 10g and 11g Certification Information.  This note contains Frequently Asked Questions regarding certified software.  The last Windows OS certified for Discoverer Admin/Desktop was Windows 7.  The 32 bit Win 7 is directly certified.  The 64 bit Win 7 is only certified in XP Mode.  See that cert note for more information.


    Best of luck.
