Java Bridge

Please note: We will shut down the Helpdesk soon. Please update your releases to Hyland RPA 22.2. To view the latest documentation for Hyland RPA 22.2 release visit Hyland Docs.

In order to automate Java Applications using the Java Sensor in Element Target activities you need to enable the Java Access Bridge.

Please note! Make sure to have Java application installed to automate your process.

There are two ways of enabling the Java Access Bridge

Enabling the JAB in ease of Access Center

  1. Go to Start > Control Panel > Ease of Access > Ease of Access Center. Alternatively, press Windows Key + U to access the Ease of Access Center.
  2. Select Use the computer without a display.
  3. In the section Other programs installed, select the check box Enable Java Access Bridge (you may have to scroll down).



Please Note! After enabling Java Access Bridge, you must restart the Hyland RPA Designer (former AM Composer) and Java applications that use the accessibility API.


Enabling the JAB via Command Line


To enable the Java Access Bridge, run the following command:


"C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.x.x_xxx\bin\jabswitch" -enable


Disabling the JAB via Command Line


In case you want to disable the Java Access Bridge again (the automation won't run then), use the following command:


"C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.x.x_xxx\bin\jabswitch" -disable


Please Note! The Java Sensor in Hyland RPA Designer (former AM Composer) is only compatible with Java AWT and Java Swing Apps.
