OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) and Sametime Standalone Client issue

I upgraded my Macbook Pro to the latest OS X version, 10.11, also known as "El Capitan", and after I did that, the usual issue with the Sametime Client occured....

The App just wouldn´t start.


The fix for me was to download and install the "Java for OS X 2015-001".

So, if you´re facing the same issue, try this.

thanks - it worked ; although I see this is an older java version, so hoping there is not an impact to other apps or a security exposure.

Good to hear.
I haven't checked what the latest version is. Good point. I haven't noticed any impact but, as you say, there might be security exposure running an old Java version. I'll check to see if newer version also works.
