Platform Information

  • JSS 4.4.0 works with OpenJDK versions 1.7 or higher we suggest the latest - OpenJDK 1.8.
  • JSS 4.4.0 requires NSS 3.12.5 or higher though NSS 3.28.3 is recommended.
  • JSS 4.3.1 requires NSPR 4.7.1 or higher though NSPR 3.13 is recommended.
  • JSS only supports the native threading model (no green threads).

Compatibility

JSS 3.30 shared libraries are not backward compatible with all older JSS 4.3.2 shared libraries. A program linked with older jSS 4.3.2 shared libraries will not work with JSS 4.4.0 shared libraries without recompiling or relinking. Furthermore, applications that restrict their use of jSS APIs to the functions listed in JSS Public Functions will remain compatible with future versions of the JSS shared libraries.

Feedback

Bugs discovered should be reported by filing a bug report with bugzilla.mozilla.org (product JSS).
