Posted by Aly Essa, Last modified by Aly Essa on 05 June 2017 11:32 AM
When you use Java 7 to run the FileCatalyst HotFolder, it can not delete a task from the HotFolder Web Admin UI. This issue was observed when using the FileCatalyst HotFolder Web Admin through FileCatalyst Central or connecting directly to the FileCatalyst HotFolder deployment.

Oracle Java 7

FileCatalyst HotFolder v3.7.1 and newer.
