Java Headlines and Security Advisor April 2014

Java is the key technology for Fusion Middleware product stack and very relevant for Developer Tools, specifically Oracle Forms and Reports. Looking after the security updates and new features of JDK and JRE has impact on behavior of your application and thus effecting end users.

New Java versions have been released as part of the standard Critical Patch Update (CPU) cycle.  The latest versions are now:

  • 8U5
  • 7U55
  • 6U75
  • 5U65

Does your product allow to take advantage of these updates? Review carefully the Fusion Middleware Certification Guides before attempting to install them! Talking about Oracle Forms and Reports, the server side JDK and the client side JRE is to be checked - relevant are the branches 6 and 7.

Java downloads are available on OTNMy Oracle Support, and on java.com

Oracle Forms  and Reports are not directly effected by the latest Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory - April 2014, nevertheless worth to review with scope partner FMW components and Java.

Details on the new support timelines are available on the Oracle Java SE Support Roadmap page and are included in the updated Lifetime Support Policy: Oracle Fusion Middleware Products.
