There are times when there occurs a shakeup. Such is that time for Java. Whether Java will survive is hard to tell. It certainly needed a security bolster but now that it has arrived can the applications themselves survive the shakeup?
On 14 January 2014 Oracle will release a new version of Java. After this date, the new version of Java will insist that all applets are signed. Users wishing to install version 7u51 should be aware of the repercussions. This is likely to impact those customers that use the iDelve Enterprise Maps application, which incorporates Java applets for the map component.
