Java and Ignition
Posted by Janice Chan on 04/20/2018 04:29 PM

At Inductive Automation, we are constantly improving Ignition to best serve our customers. As part of this effort, we work closely with our technology partners to ensure the stability of the Ignition platform. Java has long been a strong part of the Ignition platform and we have exciting news about our plans to make the experience of using Java with Ignition easier and more seamless in the future.


Recently, Oracle put out a white paper focusing on the roadmap for Java which announces that commercial use of Java is essentially ending effective January 2019. While this may seem like a cause for concern, we think this is a great opportunity to inform you of how we are improving Ignition. In talks with Oracle, we were made aware of their roadmap prior to their recent announcement and have been working on our own development plan to continue to make sure the use of Java with Ignition is a good experience for our users.


We are hard at work developing Ignition v8.0 and when we release it later this year we are planning to bundle Java into the Ignition install. In v8.0, there will be no need to install Java to launch clients. This will make the experience of using Ignition simpler to manage and easier to maintain.


In the meantime, the current version of Ignition, v7.9, will continue to support Java versions 6, 7, 8, and 9 while, and LTS v7.7 supports Java version 6, 7, and 8. Ignition v7.9 does not currently support Java 10; for more information, please refer to our Knowledge Base article on that subject. To ensure your Ignition platform remains operational, we encourage you to switch over to OpenJDK, which can be downloaded here. You also have the option to obtain a commercial version of the OpenJDK from Azul Systems. These solutions will not degrade or otherwise affect the performance of your Ignition installation.


If you have any questions or encounter any Java-related issues with your Ignition system, our support staff is available to assist you.
