Java is required for the Web server on which the Web application WebOffice 10.9 SP1 is running. WebOffice 10.9 SP1 is certified for Java Development Kit 11 (64bit). VertiGIS recommends the use of Java Eclipse Temurin by Adoptium.

VertiGIS recommends the use of Java JDK 11, which remains free for commercial use and is a Long Term Support (LTS) release.

WebOffice 10.9 SP1 supports the freely available OpenJDK 11 by Adoptium. OpenJDK 11 is the open source reference implementation of version 11 of the Java SE 11 platform.

If the automatic WebOffice setup is used to install WebOffice 10.9 SP1, Java Development Kit 11 (64bit) is not included in the setup and must therefore be installed manually.

 

 

Get the latest Java 11 OpenJDK version via Adoptium Working Group Download page. The MSI file for the installation is available directly from the associated download link.

Current release information for Java OpenJDK can be found on the GitHub website.

If you want to install a Java JDK version higher than VertiGIS certified, please contact the WebOffice Support Team in advance.

 

After the Download, the MSI file must be executed on the web server and the setup must go through.

When updating Java JDK, you can simply download the latest version. When installing the new MSI setup file, the old version is automatically removed. Manual uninstalling is therefore not necessary.

Optionally, the system variable JAVA_HOME, which is required for the installation of WebOffice FTS-Index, can also be set in this step.

Important note when using WebOffice FTS-Index (from version Solr 7.x): After an update of Java, the system variable JAVA_HOME is adjusted accordingly (the path to the installation directory of Java is changed during an update). After the adjustment of the system variable a restart of the Windows service VertiGIS WebOffice FTS-Index (Port 8983) is necessary.

If in the next step Apache Tomcat is installed, the previously installed Java JDK directory must be linked.

For further information on installing Apache Tomcat, see the Apache Tomcat Installation chapter.

 

If it is an update of Java OpenJDK 11, the link to the JDK directory has to be adjusted in the settings of Apache Tomcat (tab Java) afterwards. The Apache Tomcat service must then be restarted.
