  • * Oracle does not certify on Operating System versions that are no longer supported by the Operating System provider. Older versions remain listed only for archival purposes.

  • Support for SPARC M7, SPARC T7, and SPARC S7 requires JDK 1.8.0_60 or higher.
  • Support for SPARC M8 and SPARC T8 requires JDK 1.8.0_131 or higher.
  • Oracle Linux covers both kernels: Red Hat Compatible and Unbreakable.
  • On 64-bit operating systems (OSs), both 32-bit and 64-bit Java virtual machines (JVMs) are certified, except where noted.
  • All default desktop managers are certified, except where noted.
  • For Linux platforms, gtk2 2.18+ is required for supporting JavaFX.
  • Support for Ubuntu 19.04 incorrectly listed 1.8.0_221 as the release on which it was certified. The correct version is 1.8.0_231.

Virtualization

All the above operating systems are also certified when running as virtual guest on any of the following hypervisors as long as the operating system is supported by that hypervisor.

  • Oracle VM
  • VirtualBox 3.x, 4.x
  • Solaris Containers
  • Solaris LDOMs
  • Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012
  • Docker

VMware is not a certified hypervisor.

JavaFX Graphics Support

For JavaFX applications to take advantage of the new hardware acceleration pipeline provided by JavaFX, your system must feature one of the graphics cards below. Otherwise JavaFX will default to the Java2D software pipeline.

Graphics card Supported Graphics Processing Units (GPUs)
NVIDIA
  • Mobile GPUs: GeForce 8M and 100M series or higher, NVS 2100M series or higher, and Mobility Quadro FX 300M series or higher
  • Desktop GPUs: GeForce 8 and 100 series or higher
  • Workstation GPUs: Quadro FX 300 series or higher
ATI
  • Mobile GPUs: Mobility Radeon HD 3000, 4000, and 5000 series
  • Desktop GPUs: Radeon HD 2400, 3000, 4000, 5000, and 6000 series
Intel
  • Mobile GPUs: GMA 4500MHD and GMA HD
  • Desktop GPUs: GMA 4500 and GMA HD
  • To avoid rendering issues on Windows platforms, upgrade the ATI driver to Catalyst 11.09 or later.
  • JavaFX supports graphic hardware acceleration on any certified OS X system.
  • On Linux platforms, graphic hardware acceleration is only supported for Nvidia cards (proprietary drivers only).
  • 64-bit JDK/JRE is recommended when running a JavaFX application that uses WebView.

JavaFX Media

Platform Notes
Windows Vista JavaFX Media requires that one of the following external modules be installed (by order of preference) to play AAC audio and H.264/AVC video:
  • MainConcept H.264/AVC Pro Decoder Pack
  • DivX Plus Codec Pack
  • MainConcept Showcase (includes demo version codecs)
Windows 7
Windows 8
The pre-installed Microsoft AAC and H.264 DirectShow decoder filters are used by default. However, if the MainConcept H.264/AVC Pro Decoder Pack is installed on your system, then the first available AAC or H.264 decoder from the following list is used within the following order:
  • MainConcept
  • Microsoft
  • DivX Plus
  • MainConcept trial version (demo codecs from Showcase)
If none of these decoders is available, AAC and H.264 decoding will fail.
Linux You must install GLIB 2.28 in order to run JavaFX Media. You must install the following in order to support AAC audio, MP3 audio, H.264 video, and HTTP Live Streaming:
  • libavcodec53 and libavformat53 on Ubuntu Linux 12.04 or equivalent.
  • VP6 video support does not require any third party modules.
  • On Linux platforms, installing libavformat automatically causes libavcodec to be installed.
