GeoMedia Smart Client and Java 9

Question

With the release of Java 9 how does this impact GeoMedia Smart client?

Answer

GeoMedia Smart Client 2015 and 2016 will be not be impacted  as they will remain on the Java 8 platform.

Both Java 8 and Java 9 can be on the same machine with out impacting GeoMedia Smart Client as the version is defined as an attribute in the .jnlp.

 

GeoMedia Smart Client 2018 will be a Java 9 application with the biggest impact being that Java 9 no longer supports the (x86) platforms.

Also due to limitations of Linux and Macintosh, only Windows will be "Officially" supported.
