The briefcase uses a Java applet for the synchronization of local files with the BSCW server. This applet is loaded into your browser and executed by the Java plug-in. Your browser must support this plug-in, which is automatically installed when needed. The Java runtime environment (Java plug-in) version 7 or up (also known as Java 1.7) is used, which is supported by current Web browsers.
Please note that the briefcase synchronization works only on MS Windows (7 and up).
