ImmoTool 0.9.22

During the last few weeks we’ve done some smaller modifications within ImmoTool. In addition we’ve decided to increase the minimal requirements from Java5 to Java6.

Increased minimal requirements

With the initial release of ImmoTool it was already foreseeable, that the end of lifetime of Java5 was near (see announcement of Oracle). Nevertheless we’ve supported Java5 as long as possible.

More and more of the 3rd party libraries, that are used by ImmoTool, are migrating to Java6. With the release of JAXB 2.2.5, that is an integral part of ImmoTool, we’ve alse decided to migrate ImmoTool to Java6. Otherwise we won’t be able to provide updates of 3rd party components with our ImmoTool releases.

Most users should not be affected by this decision. Any system, that is more or less up to date, will still be able to run ImmoTool. Maybe you just need to update your Java Runtime Environment to the latest version.

  • On Windows systems you should not face any problems. You need at least Windows XP to run Java6 / Java7 (see system requirements).
  • The distributors of current Linux systems provide packages for Java6 (OpenJDK6) or Java7 (OpenJDK7). Alternatively you can download the latest Java release for Linux from java.com.
  • Mac OS X provides Java6 from version 10.5 (Leopard) on. Most probably with older versions of Mac OS X you’ll not be able to run Java6 / OpenJDK6. Maybe on Mac OS X 10.5 (or newer) you need to launch the Java preferences to change the default Java version to “Java SE 6″ (or newer).
