Java 9 and Java 10 compatibility | How to make JSCAPE MFT Server run on Java 9 or Java 10
Posted by , Last modified by on 26 July 2018 06:22 PM

As of this writing, current versions of MFT Server (as well as other JSCAPE products like MFT Gateway, MFT Monitor, MFT Synchronizer, etc) are not yet readily compatible with Java 9 or Java 10 upon installation. 

However, with just a few tweaks you can let these applications run on Java 9 or 10. 

Basically, you just need to add the following lines to the application's corresponding '.vmoptions' file (e.g. server.vmoptions, gateway.vmoptions etc.):


After that, restart the application service.

All GUI installers automatically add these lines if JDK 9 or higher is detected. But for the '.zip', '.rpm' and '.tar.gz' versions, the user should make necessary changes manually.

Note that this options work under JDK 9/10 (as well as JRE 9/10) only. For lower versions of JDK they should be removed. Otherwise, the application won't start.

Note also that Java SE 9 has reached end of support. Oracle recommends that users of Java SE 9 should switch to Java SE 10.
