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.

  • 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 9 is not supported!
Java 8 (at least patch level 111) ≥ JRE 1.8.0_111 (required for Linux) v. ≥ 4.4.3 Tigon V2
Java 8 (required for Windows) v. ≥ 4.4.3
Java 7 (all OS except Windows) 4.4.3 Notea
Java 7 4.4.2
Java 6 4.2.1 & 4.2.2

SEP sesam versions 4.4.3 until 4.4.3 Tigon V1 running on non-Windows platform require Java 7, however, SEP sesam uses JavaFX for its web dashboard and user-defined schedules features. If you want to have all the latest features available, you have to manually install either OpenJFX package or Oracle®'s Java 8 (already includes JavaFX) on your SEP sesam GUI client.
