The AltairPanopticonVisualizationServerWAR_<version number>.zip file includes  which contains necessary dependencies for running Altair Panopticon software on Open JDK 11 and up.

The overview, installation, and list of the contents of are provided and discussed in the OpenJDK11Dependencies_README.txt file.


In Java 9, a number of Java EE modules were marked for deprecation, and subsequently removed completely from Java 11.

With missing Java EE dependencies, the typical exceptions would include NoClassDefFoundErrorexceptions being thrown for javax/xml/bind  classes.

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/xml/bind/JAXBException

    at monitor.Main.main(

Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: javax.xml.bind.JAXBException

In order to support deployment on either Java 1.8 or Open JDK 11+, we have packaged the necessary Java EE dependencies separately for simple installation in Tomcat.


Do the following to make the dependencies available to the JVM and the Altair Panopticon server:

1.     Stop Tomcat.

2.     Unzip the contents of  into the TOMCAT_HOME/lib  folder.
