Wandora 2013-01-28 won't start

Postby jugger » Wed Feb 13, 2013 12:48 pm


when trying to start Wandora with "Wandora.bat" from the bin directory, I'm getting the following error. Any ideas?

Hello Jugger

It seems that we have accidentally used JFrame's (Component's) method called revalidate. This method was introduced in Java version 7. Is not available in Java version 6 (or 1.6 as it is officially called) and you seem to have Java version 1.6.0_39. To run the application successfully, please update your Java version.

I am aware we claim in Wandora documentation that the application works with Java 1.6. We have to investigate if we can remove all Java 7 specific features, or if we have to drop out the Java 1.6 support.

Kind Regards

Hello Jugger

Just to let you know, we have updated Wandora distribution packages today (2013-02-25). This silent release should fix the problem you faced while starting Wandora application using Java 1.6.

Kind Regards,
