Q- Java and Flash browser plugins are technologies that will be desupported in the next few years by Oracle and Adobe. The latest versions of the major browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge) either do not support or automatically disable these plug-ins and users in this case have to manually enable them. Are there plans to enable Pathways to be delivered without the need for Java and Flash?
A- If members already have a Flash player on their computer or device, they do not need to worry about the Java notice on the Configuration Checker page. Base Camp should work with the version they already have. Our members are not required to have the latest version of Java to have access to the Base Camp Resources.
Members have reported that content functions fine even when receiving a Flash player update notice on the configuration checker page.
Cornerstone on Demand, our Learning Management system provider, is regularly updating Base Camp to ensure that it functions with current browser requirements.
All Pathways content is developed in HTML5 and is not dependent on Java or Flash.
