Supported Java versions

SEP sesam GUI is platform independent – it is based on Java and requires a Java Runtime Environment (JRE). The required Java version depends on SEP sesam version.

Java is required on all systems that serve as SEP sesam Server, SEP sesam GUI client or SEP sesam Remote Device Server (RDS) when Si3 deduplication is used.
Java is not required for SEP sesam Client (does not provide GUI) or SEP sesam RDS if Si3 deduplication is not used.

  • Supported Java versions are: Oracle/Sun Java, IBM Java and OpenJDK.
  • You can download Oracle Java at Java downloads for all operating systems.
  • On Windows systems, you can use JAVA verify to check which Java version is installed.
  • IBM Java and OpenJDK are provided by the respective Linux distributions.

The following table shows compatibility between Java and SEP sesam versions.

Java version SEP sesam version
Java 8 (at least patch level 111) ≥ JRE 1.8.0_111 4.4.3 Tigon v. 2 Note
Java 8 (required for Windows) 4.4.3 Note
Java 7 (all OS except Windows) 4.4.3 Note
Java 7 4.4.2
Java 6 4.2.1 & 4.2.2

Note: SEP sesam version ≥ 4.4.3 requires JavaFX for the new web dashboard and user-defined schedules features. Oracle®'s Java 8 already includes JavaFX (e.g., on Windows). Oracle®'s OpenJFX Project provides JavaFX packages that can be installed separately if some other Java version is used, such as IBM Java, which is typically installed on SuSE. Depending on your system and Java version, manually install either OpenJFX package or Oracle®'s Java 8 on your SEP sesam GUI client to have all the latest features available.
