Since Oracle has released Java 7 there have been multiple issues regarding the web intelligence java panel/RIA/applet in BI 4.x and XI 3.1.
There are various issues that occur from ones that are just a nuisance to actually keeping webi from launching completely, depending on your current patch level, JRE version, etc.
With the large number of issues and various kba’s that cover these issues, we decided it would be best to try and consolidate all of this information into one location.
We have created the following wiki that details different java issues that may occur in each currently supported release (XI 3.1, BI 4.0, BI 4.1) when it comes to JRE 1.7 and 1.8.
Please look it over and leave your comments to help improve the wiki.
Mike Neville and I will be updating it as issues are discovered and then their resolutions and appreciate any input or feedback that you may have.
