Cloud Data Integration : 2016 : July Skip navigation
2016

Informatica Cloud now supports Java 8.  You'll need to uninstall and download the latest agent from the 'agent download' in Informatica Cloud in order to get the Java 8 version of the agent. All upgraded agents were upgraded to the Java 7 version.

 

If you are interested, or have the requirement to use Java 8, please refer to the following Yonyx with step by step instructions:  498429

 

The default agent available before Summer' 16 upgrade uses Java 7, and was not updated to Java 8 during the upgrade. The migration to Java 8 needs to be performed by the user. If you download a new agent from Informatica Cloud, it uses Java 8.

Java 8 agents allows better performance when it comes metadata fetch by avoiding the use of the legacy ODBC-JDBC bridge. Java 8 also supports TLS encryption by default.
