Advanced Management Console 2.22 Release Notes

The Java Advanced Management Console (AMC) offers system administrators greater and easier control in managing Java version compatibility and security updates for desktops within their enterprise and for ISVs with Java-based applications and solutions.

AMC is available from My Oracle Support (MOS) and Java Advanced Management Console Downloads page. For an overview of the Advanced Management Console, see the Advanced Management Console product page.

What's New

See the What's New In Advanced Management Console page for descriptions of the additions to the Advanced Management Console features in all releases until now.

Documentation

Other Notes

The following points provide additional information about this release:

  • Containerized Advanced Management Console

    Oracle provides an easy-to-deploy containerized version of Advanced Management Console. Containerized AMC uses WebLogic Kubernetes Operator (WKO) for deploying and managing AMC. This solution can be easily deployed in cloud or non-cloud environments and leverages scaling functionality of the operator within a Kubernetes framework. This will address the complexity involved in installing and maintaining the non-containerized AMC without the intervention of IT or any specialized technical skills. For more details, see Containerized AMC Deployment Guide.

  • Support for Oracle WebLogic 14c

    Advanced Management Console version 2.20 onwards supports Oracle WebLogic 14c.

  • Automatic Update of Advanced Management Console Agent

    When upgrading the Advanced Management Console to version 2.17 or later, and if the Agent Auto Update option is enabled, you must manually replace the signing certificate in the agent machine. For detailed steps, see Automatic Update of Advanced Management Console Agent.

  • Advanced Management Console Agent Installation on macOS

    While installing Advanced Management Console agent on macOS, a dialog appears confirming that the AMCAgent app is downloaded. Click Open to install the agent successfully.

  • JRE Path Reported Differently in macOS Catalina

    Due to change in the macOS Catalina file system, the files and folders present in the user directory are displayed in another path as well. To avoid reporting duplicates, the path /System/Volumes/ is excluded from JRE tracking by default on macOS. To include this path, remove the /System/Volumes/ entry from the Paths To Exclude From JRE Tracking field. For detailed steps, see Tracking Managed JREs in Agents.

  • Password Reset Support

    The password reset functionality added in AMC 2.17 does not support LDAP accounts.

  • End of Support for Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.x

    Oracle WebLogic Server 12.1.x Extended Support ended in Dec 2019. Therefore, AMC updates released after Dec 2019 require Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.x. AMC users running on WebLogic Server 12.1.x should upgrade to 12.2.x as soon as possible.

  • End of Support for Windows 7

    Microsoft will not support Windows 7 post January 14, 2020. Consequently, Windows 7 will not be a supported platform for future releases of AMC.

  • Java Web Start

    Java Web Start has been removed from Java SE 11 and later. Hence, while uploading JRE using the Add Java Version window, the jnlp file gets downloaded. You need to run the java webstart command to open the Add Java Version window and upload the file.

    For additional information about Java Web Start, see: Java Client Roadmap Update.

  • Security Recommendations for WebLogic Server

    AMC requires that you keep your instance of WebLogic Server up-to-date with security patches. It is recommended that you subscribe to receive notifications of Oracle’s Critical Patch Update Advisories and Security Alerts. Refer to https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/securityemail-090378.html for instructions.

  • Java Plug-in Support for JDK 8

    Java plug-in support is removed from JDK 8 (8u271) on macOS, Linux, and Solaris platforms.

  • Java Plug-in Support in Browsers

    Java Plug-in support has been removed from Chrome, Firefox, and Safari browsers in Windows, Linux, and macOS platforms.
