It appears Oracle have changed the behaviour of Java 7 from 20 Jan 2014. It appears that J7 will now automatically update.


Client has FMS12 (can't update to 13 despite owning it) on Windows 2k8 which now won't stop updating Java every night. The last supported Java version for FileMaker Server 12 is J7u71, however this automatically updates to J7u75, which breaks the console. The update process also shuts down the FileMaker Server (in an orderly fashion, as it happens).


Oracle appear to have also removed the update tab from the Java control panel on 64 bit windows for Java 7.


Anyone else seeing issues here or have solutions?
