JDK Software

All Oracle Solaris operating systems previously identified in this table

The following:

  • Java SE Development Kit (JDK) 7u45 (1.7.0 Update 45) or later update (available from Oracle)
  • Java SE Development Kit (JDK) 8u101 (1.8.0 Update 101) (available from Oracle)

Caution: It is recommended that you upgrade JDK to the latest update according to the vendor's security suggestions.

We recommend the following for JDK 8:

  • Use 64-bit JVM

    If you use JDK 8 for PPM Server platforms, the server configuration parameter SERVER_MAX_PERM_SIZE stops working, and perm size would be included in heap size which is controlled by the parameter SERVER_MAX_HEAP_SIZE.

  • Update the RSA keys size to be greater than 1024 bits if you use X.509 certificates with RSA keys.
