v5.3.0 (r23989)

In-house License Key failures


License keys in some frevvo In-house servers may fail to renew. This problem effects all frevvo software version v4.0 or later. If your frevvo software installation has this issue you will see the following error displayed when you login to your form server. Unfortunately, if you use public forms anonymously without logging into the form server you will not notice this issue until the license 9 day grace period completes.

If your frevvo software installation has this problem, you will see error messages like the one below in your frevvo log file

20:37:42,452  INFO HttpMethodDirector:439 - I/O exception ( caught when processing request: java.lang.RuntimeException: Could not generate DH keypair 


If your frevvo server has this issue you must fix this immediately before the 9 day grace period. This problem is caused by a known issue in the Java 7 Runtime that was fixed in JRE Update 21 (the latest is Update 55). A change in the Ciphers ordering caused keys longer than 1024 bits to fail. If your frevvo software installation is using Java 7 Runtime update 20 or earlier you must upgrade immediately to solve this issue.

How can I tell what Java Runtime my frevvo software is using?

One simple test is to login to your Live Forms server. If you do not see the warning message then your frevvo software is not affected. You can also open a command window and enter "java -version" however your machine might have multiple copies of java installed. A 3rd method is to look in the frevvo log files for "java.version". This will tell you for sure what Java Runtime version is in use by the frevvo software.

End of Life Policy

frevvo supports major versions for two years. For example, frevvo supported Live Forms 4.1.x for 2 years after the first GA release in the v4.1 series. The first GA release was v4.1.1 on December 12, 2010. Thus technically end of life would be December 12, 2012. However in this case frevvo extended the End of Life Date for the v4.1 series to October 5, 2014. Documentation for Live Forms versions (in red - beginning with v5.1)) that are no longer supported is available on our frevvo Documentation Directory.
