The install of Nways V 1.2.3 was tested using JDK 220.127.116.11, since 1.1.6
was not GA at the time of the V 1.2.3 release. The JDK is required only
for the installation to run. Operationally, it should run OK with 1.1.6
(I think current release is 18.104.22.168 with PTF).
The new Nways V2, requires 1.1.6 JDK to install.
The problem is Java's a moving target. The locations of the Java
objects in the directory structure changes from version to version, and
assumptions made for an application tested with one Java version may
cause failure with another Java version.
Hope this explanation helps.
