Version Notes

Canoo RIA-Suite 2014 Update 3 requires the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.7 or later on the server and on the client. It is recommended to use Java version 1.7.0_25 or later.

The deployment of a Canoo RIA-Suite application requires a JEE server that supports at least the Servlet 2.4 specification.

Since JRE 1.7.0_51, to be able to run ULC applications in jnlp and applet mode you need to:

  1. sign all client side jars with a certificate issued from a recognized certification authority.
  2. include Permissions, Codebase and Application-Library-Allowable properties in the manifest of each client side jar.
  3. include the security tag in the jnlp file.

Known Problems and Limitations

You can find known problems and limitations in our issue database.
