CUFS Minimum Client Java Requirements Change 17th June 2019

From Monday 17th June 2019, the minimum recommended/supported version of Java for CUFS increased to version 1.8.0_211. This means that PCs or MACs used by CUFS users must have a version of Java installed at version 1.8.0_211 or later versions of Java version 8.

Guidelines on Supported Browsers, JAVA and OS supplied by Oracle

Java is now a licenced product for use with certain Oracle applications, including CUFS. The University has a limited use licence for Java downloads and updates but this is restricted for use with purchased Oracle products only and not any other third party products that may require Java. To download Java for use with CUFS please go to the Download area

Please note, only one version of Java should be installed and it is recommended using the latest recommended/supported version of Java. All old versions of Java should be removed to stop Java Errors when logging onto UFS. Admin rights are required on the PC to set up the Java environment.
