T7 GUI Launcher

New GUI Access via „T7 GUI Launcher“Introduction of the T7 GUI Launcher

Deutsche Börse worked on an alternative to continue to provide a seamless update mechanism of the T7 GUIs for the trading participants in light of Oracle’s announced Java SE Support Roadmap. The roadmap has some impact on the T7 GUI launch mechanism (JavaWebstart) and the usage of Oracle’s java runtime environments required to run the T7 GUIs.

For further detailed information on the Java SE Support Roadmap, please also visit the Oracle´s website.

Deutsche Börse´s Alternative

Deutsche Börse is working on a customised solution so that trading participants are still able to run and seamlessly update the T7 GUIs without any additional Java licence charges being required. A new “T7 GUI Launcher” will replace the Java Web Start. Additionally Deutsche Börse has achieved a licence agreement, which allow the deployment of a bundled Java SE 8 Runtime Environment without additional Java licence charges for the T7 trading community.

The “T7 GUI Launcher” is a small software utility, which all T7 GUI users have to install. Once it is installed, the user’s workplace will provide seamless and automatic updating of the T7 GUIs and of a Java SE 8 JRE. As a result, T7 GUIs

  • start via the T7 GUI Launcher
  • will operate exclusively using the Deutsche Börse-packaged JRE version (only for T7 GUI applications)

The T7 GUI Launcher will be available in the simulation environment starting early February. The go-live is planned in May with the T7 Release 7.1. Trading Participants who continue to have their own installation of Java SE 8 JRE will still be able get the T7 GUIs via Java Web Start until further notice. Please be advised, that the “T7 GUI Launcher” will only support Windows, i.e. it will not be available for Linux and Mac OS.
