Java Extension ( Java Desktop App running on one machine and Bot on another machine)

Dear All,

Below is the scenario in Citrix environment.
Machine 1(Multi Tenancy Server)- UiP Studio, Java Plugin is installed , Citrix Plugin is installed (Here the bot supposed to run)
Machine 2(Multi Tenancy Server)- My Target application(Java Desktop Application) runs here.Remote Runtime is installed.

My Bot which is running on Machine 1 logs in to Machine 2 and perfoms activities there.

Using Attach WIndow activity it is possible to detect elements on the screen of Java App on first two Java Windows and in the middle of the process Bot fails to detect Popup Window( Activity: Attach window) and the error “You are trying to automate Java based app, Please install Java Plugin” comes up and cannot continue the bot development further.

My question:

  1. Ist it necessary to install Java Plugins on Target Machine as well?
  2. I found that Java Open SDK version 8 is installed on Target machine. Does UiPath supports Java Open SDK or only Java SDK from oracle? ( there is no mention of that in the UiP Docs)
    3)Note: All instructions on this link is clearly read and followed. Java Extension Troubleshooting

It would be rellay helpful if anyone has answer for it. Thanks.

Hi Ganesh,

The java extension must be installed on the machine that has the JRE installed, in your case, the target machine.
