Starting in Infogix ER 9.3, the product replaced Oracle Java (see annoucement) in its rich client. The product now uses AWS and Corretto and IcedTea-Web as replacements to continue seamless operations for the users.
With replacing Oracle there are a number of steps that need to take place prior to adopting Infogix ER 9.3.
An overview of the new rich client is below:
- Installs AWS Corretto 8 JVM and IcedTea-Web to Windows 10 desktops
- Replaces Oracle Java 8 and Java Web Start, while supporting the same deployment model and protocol
- Users have the option for command line or GUI driven installs
- The installation folder and ER server URL are configurable
- Multiple Rich Client installation/versions can be installed on same desktop
- A Rich Client installation can be launched against different servers (on same release version) after install
- If you are upgrading from a prior ER version, remove the
-XXMaxPermSizeparameter from the
ER.propertiesconfiguration file. This is obsolete and prevents new client from starting
- Download the Infogix ER client installation guide. This is contained within the All ER documentation documentation download.
- Download the Infogix ER client installation files. This is contained within the version 9.3 installation files.
An overview of the installation steps are below. For complete details, please refer to the installation guide downloaded in step 2 above.
You can perform the installation via a GUI or command line:
InfogixERClient_windows-x64_9_3.exe found in Client Install Package zip and follow the prompts. This guides you through the entire installation.
For complete steps, please refer to the ER installation guide.
Create a Response file
Based upon the template below, create a file named response.var and place it in the same directory as your ER client installation file. The deployment name and server URL will need to be updated with your actual name and location. This file will be used in the next installation step.
# install4j response file for Infogix ER Rich Client
Invoke installer with response file without install prompts
The example below will install ER silently based upon the response file create above. If you used a different name or location for your response file, then the -varfile property will need to point to the response file.
InfogixERClient_windows-x64_9_3.exe -Dinstall4j.keepLog=true -Dinstall4j.alternativeLogfile=%TEMP%\InfogixERClientInstall.log -q -overwrite -dir %USERPROFILE%\InfogixERClient93 -varfile response.var

The new client can be launched from the desktop shortcut or start menu:
