This application requires a Java Runtime Environment to function properly. Please see the Java FAQ for more details.
This applies to the majority of java based (and not just java based) web applications, including most open-source projects. Most of these applications need a runtime environment to run so when you try to launch them without Java, you won’t be able to.
Java is a server-side language, so you need to have a Java runtime environment installed on your machine to run this application.
You can find a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in the Java section of your Oracle Corporation website. You can download a Java Runtime Environment here. In my company’s case, we run a version of Java for our servers, but it’s not always the latest version. If you encounter issues with the installation, use our Java Help Centre to get help.
In my case, I am running a version for the Apache servers, so the Java Runtime Environment JRE is version 184.108.40.206.
The problem is any app that has to run on a server with Java Runtime Environment 1.6, you will not be able to run it on a server with Java Runtime Environment above 1.6.
The problem is the Java Runtime Environment, or JRE, is a part of the Java installation that must be installed into the machine. It’s a package that the Java installer uses to perform the installation. The JRE is a bit of code, one of the modules that makes up the Java installation. The JRE is needed to run Java, and is what makes Java work. If you try to install Java with Java 1.
So what does this mean for you, if you have a Java Runtime Environment 1.6? The answer is that you can’t run it on a server with Java Runtime Environment above 1.6. Basically, Java 1.6 is the last, and last, version of Java that will run on a server with Java 1.6.
The Java installation will install the appropriate JRE as well as the necessary runtime to run Java, so it’s not as if you have to install Java 1.6 only.
The reason Java was originally developed for server installations was because it was believed that the Java implementation on a server with Java 1.6 was going to be slower than the Java implementation on a server with Java 1.6. A few years later, it wasn’t until Oracle started to implement Java 1.6 that the speed issue was addressed.
