System Requirements

Reflection for the Web components can be installed on a single server or on separate servers. Reflection for the Web requires:

Server Requirements

  • Server-class operating system

    • For production, a server-class system is required.
    • For initial testing or evaluation, a workstation could be used.
  • Server or Application Server running JRE 8 or later

    JRE 8 is installed by the automated installer.

Terminal Session Requirements

  • A web browser using JRE 8 or later that can run trusted applets.

  • For TLS connections to your host, Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files may be required.

    Unlimited strength policy files contain no restrictions on cryptographic strengths, in contrast to the strong but limited cryptography policy files bundled in a JRE.

To apply the JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files:

  1. Download the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files from Oracle or IBM.

    Be sure to download the correct policy file updates for your version of Java:

    Java 8:


  2. Uncompress and extract the downloaded file. The download includes a Readme.txt and two .jar files with the same names as the existing policy files.

  3. Locate the two existing policy files:



    On UNIX, look in <java-home>/lib/security/

    On Windows, look in C:\Program Files\Java\jre<version>\lib\security\

  4. Replace the existing policy files with the unlimited strength policy files you extracted.

NOTE:The JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy Files must be applied each time you upgrade your JRE.
