CreationOnline: Migration to Web Start App and end of Java 7 support


Following Oracle’s announcement to decommission Java applets Clearstream Banking1 requests that customers migrate to the CreationOnline Web Start App and stop using the CreationOnline Applet login.

The current Applet login runs CreationOnline within the browser window:

whereas the Web Start App runs in a separate window:

You can launch the Web Start App as follows:

Web Start brings the following advantages compared to Applets :

  • can be launched from any browser or saved locally and launched without a browser.
  • The applet browser plugin-in can be removed/de-activated for additional browser security

The switch from Applet to Web Start is completely transparent for the user. The same login and password are used, the application runs in exactly the same way and the functionalities do not change..

Switching to CreationOnline as Web Start App as soon as possible will ensure uninterrupted application access in the future.

End of Java 7 support

We would also like to inform customers that from

November 2018

Clearstream Banking will officially stop the Java 7 support for CreationOnline and start supporting Java 9.

Customers running Java versions 8 or 9 can then receive the full support of the Clearstream Connectivity Helpdesk if there are issues. All testing will be performed against the version, Java 8 update 111.

Java 7 support will be in line with Oracle’s announcement to stop public updates after April 2015:

Customers are reminded that outdated Java versions are no longer tested by Clearstream Banking, and are therefore not guaranteed to work and not supported.
