Support for Java Runtime Environments (JREs) in SAS® Viya® 3.5

Support for JREs

The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) must be installed on every machine in your deployment.  If you are installing SAS Common Planning Service (which is included in SAS Markdown Optimization, SAS Financial Planning, SAS Assortment Planning, and SAS Demand Planning), you also need to install the Java Development Kit (JDK). The following versions are supported:

  • Azul Zulu version 1.8.0_121 and later within 1.8.
  • Oracle JRE SE version 1.8.0_161 and later within 1.8.
  • OpenJDK version 1.8.0_121 and later within 1.8.

SAS recommends using the most recent releases of JRE and JDK 1.8.x in order to receive the latest security and bug fixes.

To avoid a problem with rendering that affects a selected set of fonts in Traditional Chinese, Korean and Japanese locales, use Oracle JRE instead of OpenJDK. As a workaround, you can make a change to the registry to support an alternate set of fonts with OpenJDK. You must also download and install the alternative fonts. For more information, refer to SAS Note 58855.
