Hi. I am trying to determine why i got an java 1.7 error after uninstalling legacy version of OWB and Schedule Connect. We are in process of upgrading to v13.3 of Clarity and i read in the Change & Impact Guide that this release uses Java 7 and that starting with v13.3 CA Clarity PPM provides a specific JRE for Open Workbench. I can confirm that when i installed executed the wbsetup.exe file from v13.3 that it indeed copied jre7 in the installation director of my workstation for use with schedule connect. However, i could not open a project from Clarity into OWB v2 without getting a 'can't location java 1.7 error message.
I guess my question relates to the workstation itself. I was running clarity v12.1 with legacy OWB prior to our v13.3. upgrade and it used java 1.6 on the workstation itself (as required). thus, when i completed the uninstall / install procedures related to the OWB setup file with v13.3, i saw that jre7 was placed into my CA subfolder for use by schedule connect. I did not think i would need to remove Java 1.6 from my machine as we have legacy applications in our enterprise that are coded to that version :( . I could not get pass the error until i uninstalled java 1.6 from control panel and installed java 1.7. But i thought that was the whole point of CA providing jre7 into a specific install folder as to not complicate or disrupt legacy apps and configs.
Please advise. Do i have to install Java 1.7 on the workstation itself? (Program Files / Java) If so...what is the point of placing the jre in the CA subfolder during OWBv2 install.
Perhaps my registry was not correct ? as i could not open a project until i installed Java 1.7.
What am i missing here?
