Hi guys,

The first issue is Java 8. Took me a while to figure that FS does not work with it on RedHat boxes (6,7 workstation). Is this true? The installer runs well, but the catalina.out says:

Apr 29, 2016 3:35:28 PM org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina start INFO: Server startup in 584 ms Apr 29, 2016 3:35:38 PM org.apache.jasper.compiler.JDTCompiler$1 findType SEVERE: Compilation error org.eclipse.jdt.internal.compiler.classfmt.ClassFormatException

The second issue is the 1.9 installer. I think this has happened before, the desktop is reporting 30 days trail passed?! How is this possible since I maybe used the FS1.8 on a different VM last year, and this are all fresh new VM's with the DB as well, and a new installer.

Hi Downunder,

My colleague Serdar will help you with the first issue. But I can chime in for the second issue.

We used several expiration mechanisms in the past. But usually a Formspider trial you download expires at a certain date, regardless of the time you install it. Currently, the expiration date is July 1st 2016.

I recommend downloading a new 1.9. Then we will email you a new trial license automatically. If you already have a 1.9 installed which is expired, try running the license script on the expired installation. It will probably work. If it does not, run the newly downloaded installer and make a fresh new Formspider installation. Then run the license script we sent you in this new schema.

Kind Regards,

Thank you Yalim, the above worked! I did not know about applying the sql script since used an old email account which I never read :) All good now.

Hi Downunder,

Formspider shouldn't have a problem with Java 1.8 or Redhat Linux. The reason might of your issue be that you're using a JVM that doesn't support all standard features of Java Spec. If it's the case, I can suggest trying with Oracle JVM.

Kind Regards, Serdar
