JSDoc 3 utilises the Mozilla Rhino engine, which requires Java. JSDoc 3 is known to work with version 1.6.0_24 of Java.
JSDoc 3 uses advanced features in the Rhino application which are only available in or after the 1.7 release 3. A copy of this version of Rhino is included in JSDoc so this is not normally an issue that the user needs to be concerned with. However, in rare cases, users may have their Java CLASSPATH configured to override that included Rhino and point to some older version of Rhino instead. If this is the case, simply correct the CLASSPATH to remove the older Rhino.
The version of rhino distributed with JSDoc3 can be found here: https://github.com/jannon/rhino
