FYI: If you are using WebI via a Business Objects portal, and are running Java v7u51 on your computer, there are security issues that prevent the application from loading. I’ve submitted some information regarding this issue, including a workaround: SAP is aware of this issue, and is working on a fix.

Symptom

  • The WebIntelligence Java Report Panel does not launch when using supported Java Runtime Environment 7 update 51 with default settings
  • A message “Error. Click for details” appears on the InfoView webpage instead
  • Clicking the error reveals another message “Missing required Permissions manifest attribute in main jar: http://hostname:port/AnalyticalReporting/webiApplet/ThinCadenza.jar

   Environment  

  • SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.1
  • Web Intelligence
  • Java Runtime Environment 7 update 51

   Reproducing the Issue  

  1. Install Java Runtime Environment 7 update 51.
  2. In any supported browser, login to InfoView and create a new Web Intelligence report using the Java Report Panel.
  3. A popup window appears “Do you want to run this application?”. Click Run.
  4. Instead of launching Java Report Panel, an error “Error. Click for details” appears.
  5. Clicking this error reveals the additional message “Missing required Permissions manifest attribute in main jar: http://hostname:port/AnalyticalReporting/webiApplet/ThinCadenza.jar
  6. Clicking the Details button opens up the Java console and shows the same message.

      Workaround:

  1. Go to Control Panel, double click Java to open the Java Control Panel.
  2. Click on the Security tab and change the slider from default setting of “High” to “Medium”.
  3. Click OK to save the changes. The Java Report Panel should now be launched without any errors.
