Sofie V6 - OpenJDK

Dear SOFiE users,

We are pleased to inform you about the main changes of version 6.0 of SOFiE as from June 17th, 2020. It now supports OpenJDK, the free and open Java environment.

 

Whatever your current version, it is strongly recommended that you carry out this update which concerns the migration of the Java version used. To do this, it will be imperative to uninstall your current SOFIE version to install the new suggested version in order to align yourself with the latest security and Java usage recommendations. Your LuxTrust certificate remains valid and you can continue to use it with the new version.

 

If you don't operate this change before end of year, you will no longer be able to benefit from SOFIE support and the latest functionalities.

 

A document describing the update procedure is available in the installation package hereunder. After this update, your SOFiE login screen, main window, and the “Help – About” menu should display “V6.0”.

 

Do not hesitate to consult the SOFiE website for more information (direct link).

 

Please do not hesitate to contact our SOFIE helpdesk in case of technical questions at +352 355 66 600, or by E-mail:  helpdesk.lux@six-payment-services.com

 

 

Thanking you for the confidence you give in our electronic transfer system.
