Beginning with version 9.3, ER rich client now has a new version available. This is due to the changes with Oracle Java licensing and web start technologies.
ER 9.3 has support for both the legacy rich client and the new rich client. Note that starting with ER 9.4, slated for a January 2021 release, the legacy rich client will be removed, and you will need to switch to the new client within the first section of this article. It is recommended to switch to the new client.
ER "new rich client" available starting with ER 9.3 (recommended)
The new rich client is available as part of the product installation files.
The new ER client utilizes Amazon Corretto as opposed to Oracle JDK. This is recommended for long term support and ease of use, as we ship the certified JDK with ER client, ensuring the team is utilizing a certified combination of these technologies.
For additional details on the new ER client installation, please refer to Steps for New Infogix ER Rich Client Package.
ER "legacy rich client" accessed via the web-UI
The ER rich client which is traditionally accessed via the web-UI requires, and will continue to require, Oracle JDK 8. This is the same rich client that ER 9.2 and older uses.New issues within the rich client are not supported as the new desktop client is the supported and recommended client for daily use.
