Java is software that must reside on all Windows machines that use a web browser to access Banner (https://inb.umt.edu). Java runs automatically with your web browser and connects Windows-based clients and Oracle Application Forms. At UM the current Java version used on the Banner server is 1.6.45
The Banner server is updated to the most current version of Java quarterly, in conjunction with Banner maintenance. A server lag time is possible with Java updates if a new version is released prior to the quarterly activity. However, Banner runs on the Java 1.6.x family, so if an update is released prior to this time frame, users can update if prompted to do so. No version conflicts will occur.
Java 7 version 51, the newest version of Java released on January 14, 2014, does not appear to work with Banner. Please do not upgrade to this new version until further information is available. If you have upgraded, please uninstall this version and downgrade to Java 6 Update 45, available for download to the right.
We are recommending that Mac users update Java on their computers as follows:
