Current releases

SDK 1.3 (MPE Version A.30.00) is the most recent supported Java release. It is downloadable from the "Supported JDK Software" link.

This patch will also be included in the MPE/iX 7.0 Express 1 release as well as in the MPE/iX 7.5 Mainline release.

SDK 1.2.2 (MPE Version A.22.05) is still available. It is downloadable from the "Supported JDK Software" link.

JDK 1.1.7B is the final JDK 1.1 release. You can download the software from the 'Supported JDK Software' link. This is the JDK version included with MPE/iX 6.0 Express 1.

A patch is available online to update the original 1.1.7B release to support compressed jar files. This patch is also downloadable under the 'Supported JDK Software' link.
