Software requirements

The current version of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java has been certified against AdoptOpenJDK's OpenJDK 11 with Hotspot VM and JavaFX 11.0.1.

The 100.4 release was the last release supporting Java 8.

As of Java 11, the JavaFX SDK is no longer bundled with the JDK. You must configure JavaFX separately. The Runtime depends on the following JavaFX modules:

  • javafx.controls
  • javafx.web
  • javafx.fxml

See Get the SDK for options on configuring your development environment.

Windows platforms will require Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2017.

Linux installations must not have modified operating system binaries such as kernel or glibc.

Requirements for ArcGIS software and connected services

To use ArcGIS Server data or services in your app, use ArcGIS Server version 10.3 or later. To use ArcGIS Server data when your app is offline, use ArcGIS Server version 10.3 or later.

To create mobile map packages for use in your ArcGIS Runtime SDK apps, use ArcGIS Pro version 2.2 or later.

To create mobile scene packages for use in your ArcGIS Runtime SDK apps, use ArcGIS Pro version 2.3 or later.

To create next generation locators (*.loz), use ArcGIS Pro version 2.3 or later. Next generation locators are only supported on 64-bit apps.

To create annotation layers for use in your ArcGIS Runtime SDK apps, use ArcGIS Pro version 2.3 or later. Annotation layers can be published to mobile map packages or to a service that uses ArcGIS Enterprise version 10.7 or later.

ArcGIS Desktop version 10.3 or later is required if you're using the Create Runtime Content capability. You can create ArcGIS Runtime SDK content in the ArcMap user interface or with the Create Runtime Content geoprocessing tool.

ArcGIS Runtime SDK works with ArcGIS Enterprise version 10.3 or later portals, and web maps created with these portals.

ArcGIS Runtime SDK works with utility network schema versions 2 and 3.

Local Server is only supported on Windows and Linux.
