Default Prefered Java version for Mirth

Hi,

I scanned the forums for which Java version to use with Mirth, but the answers are from early 2012.

Is the recommendation still is to use Oracle Java?
Are the issues with Java 1.7 resolved or shall we use 1.6 still?

What about the Open JDK?

I have installed and ran Mirth Connect with both the Open JDK and Oracles Java Embedded 1.7.0 without any issues, but I prefer to play it safe and go with the recommended environment to avoid future problems

I believe the Java 7 issues were fixed in the 2.2 upgrade.

Default Upgrading to MIRTH Connect 2.2 -- Java 7 Required?

Cory,
If we are upgrading to MIRTH Connect 2.2 is Java 7 a requirement?

Thank you.

Nope, Java 7 is not required, 6 will work just fine.

Always include what Mirth Connect version you're working with. Also include (if applicable) the code you're using and full stacktraces for errors (use CODE tags). Posting your entire channel is helpful as well; make sure to scrub any PHI/passwords first.

The current version of Mirth Connect on the site is 2.2.2. Last year when I went to Java 7 I had problems logging in. I didn't see that addressed in the release notes. Is Java 6 the preferred version or is 2.2.2 stable with Java 7?

2.2.2 is stable with Java 7. However Java had some known issues from releases 7u5-10, so that may have been what you were experiencing.

Did you use the same .jnlp? Or did you create a new one?

If you are using the same .jnlp it won't work because it is calling the wrong version of Mirth.
