Latest Java Plugin Now Supported/Recommended

Hi folks. Over the holiday break, the good people over in our IR department applied a patch to the WebCT servers that addressed several issues in WebCT. One of these issues pertains to the Java plugin. Last year, we posted about how you needed to install an old version of Java and turn off the auto-update because at that time, WebCT did not yet support the latest version.

Well good news folks! Now, WebCT supports the most recent version of Java. (In fact, the IR team is strongly recommending that students go ahead and update their Java, as they suspect some functions might not work properly if you continue using the old version.) So, below are the steps you need to go through in order to update your Java.

  1. Uninstall the old version of Java. (To do this, go to Start >> Control Panel >> Add/Remove Programs, and uninstall the old version — or versions — of Java or “J2SE” that you currently have installed.)
  2. Visit and download and install the latest version of Java.

As always, email us if you have any questions. Thanks, and good luck with classes on Monday!
