Oracle, Sun fixing J2SE bug with E-Business Suite

Oracle is working with Sun to fix a bug that affects how its E-Business Suite runs on Windows Vista

Oracle is working with Sun Microsystems to fix a bug affecting how the E-Business Suite runs on Windows Vista.

The problem is a flaw within Sun's Java 2 Platform Standard Edition (J2SE) platform, wrote Steven Chan, director of applications technology integration, on one of Oracle's blogs.

"This is a critical issue, unfortunately, and we're working with Sun to get this into a future J2SE release," Chan wrote. "As of today, we don't have a firm schedule for the next J2SE release containing this fix."

Because of the problem, Oracle doesn't know when it will certify E-Business versions 11i and 12 for Vista. Oracle is still evaluating the use of J2SE's 5.0 and 6.0 plug-ins, Chan wrote.

The issue may not be pressing for many of Oracle's customers just yet. Chan wrote that Oracle hasn't received much response to an informal survey about their client's plans to upgrade to Windows Vista. Most analysts expect a brisker adoption of Window Vista among businesses next year.

It's unlikely that Oracle will certify Jlnitiator -- Oracle's licensed version of Sun's Java Virtual Machine (JVM) -- with E-Business clients running on Vista, "but that's also under investigation," Chan wrote. Oracle's forms-based modules are certified to run on Jlnitiator, Chan wrote on a previous blog entry.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
