What version of Java is needed for Yellowfin 7.4?

David Registro shared this question 6 years ago

Trying to install Yellowfin, but running into the following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/hof/patch/PatchInstaller : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0

Looks like a problem with Java version.

Yellowfin 7.4 has a minimum requirement of Java 7 (1.7) to be able to run.

However, the message you've recieved really just means that the version of Yellowfin/Tomcat is requiring a different version to what you're using.

In most cases it happens when Yellowfin has been upgraded and the Tomcat has not, so it's running against newer code which it cannot support correctly.

If running into this error, just reach out to Yellowfin support and we will work out the best solution.
