This page gives you the information needed to setup openJDK for the transmission module on the platform.

The transmission module requires Java 8 with java Webstart and javaFX.

You do not need any administrator rights on the workstation but having them will simplify the procedure.

Step 1: Download a JDK with JavaFX

We suggest you to download OpenJDK Corretto from Amazon

If you are not able to use the MSI installer (you do not have administrator rights) you can download the archive. In this case you need to set the java home. In the User variables add the variable: JAVA_HOME. As value put the path of the JDK previously downloaded.


Step 2: Download a tool for Java Webstart (Icedtea)

If you have the administrator rights on the workstation you can use the msi installer

Alternatively, if you do not those rights, you can download the archive

Step 3: Open the Icedtea settings

Go to the Icedtea directory (bin folder) and open itweb-settings.exe
