We have BPM version 8.02 installed. When I created a new Vugen script it recorded fine.
However when I re-run the Vugen script it failed on a particular step and it got this error message:
Our BPM installation does not have Java installed.
Do we now need to install Java on the BPM server?
I think yes.
You have to be able to recreate the steps using the local browser.
Could you please give the exact error line with code which is shown in VU Gen.
BPM itself is an application server, so will definitely have its own version of jre.
Another interesting point is Vugen script is generally protocol based and don't depend much on the local environment when the BPM server runs it.
If you could please provide the runtime script log from the workspace that will good to understand further(mdrv.txt and output.txt).
I looked at the installation requirements and found that Java JDK version 6.x needed to be installed.
