CMSDK version 126.96.36.199 was released back in January 2005. This and every subsequent 188.8.131.52.x CMSDK version requires Oracle Application Server 10gR2 (10.1.2.0.2) for its run-time environment. This version of Oracle Application Server and the Java version it depends on (JDK 1.4) have already reached its end-of-life on Extended Support. See Oracle Application Server 10g certification information for more information.
So what now?
Let me explain to you how you can move your existing CMSDK environment to the latest Oracle stack.
In March 2012 we released a new version of CMSDK (version 184.108.40.206.3), which corrects two major issues that existed in CMSDK version 220.127.116.11:
- Removing the dependency on Oracle Application Server 10g.
- Making CMSDK compatible with the latest Java versions.
Since then, we have released a new CMSDK 18.104.22.168.x patch every four months. The most recent one, version 22.214.171.124.7, has been released to My Oracle Support as Patch 16465003 in July 2013. This patch includes a number of bug fixes that have been found by customers and partners during their testing of the earlier CMSDK 126.96.36.199.x versions. The Readme that is bundled with the patch contains the list of bugs fixed as well as the installation and upgrade instructions and the list of deprecated features.
CMSDK 188.8.131.52 is certified on current middleware products such as Oracle WebLogic Server or Oracle GlassFish Server and is available for download on My Oracle Support.
