Description Libor Fischmeistr 2015-03-11 09:08:17 UTC
NBI installer doesn't work on JDK9 on Mac (not sure how on other platforms).
Comment 1 Libor Fischmeistr 2015-03-25 08:23:31 UTC
I can confirm the same behaviour for Linux. On Windows the installer is launched, but the JDK not found.

The reason is that the files in JDK 9 does not correspond to previous JDK versions. For example /lib/dt.jar is missing in JDK 9
Comment 2 Libor Fischmeistr 2015-03-26 10:27:55 UTC

Comment 3 Quality Engineering 2015-03-27 03:22:05 UTC
Integrated into 'main-silver', will be available in build *201503270001* on (upload may still be in progress)
