You might get a sense of deja vu when reading this article, but I'll keep repeating myself until it seems safe to stop. To recap: the mismanaged session cookie issue (now fixed) may have made you a little nervous about automatically applying new JRE updates. To reassure you on that front:
All JRE releases are certified with EBS upon release
- Sun Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0_26 (a.k.a. JRE 6u26-b03) is certified with E-Business Suite Release 11i and 12.
- JRE 1.6.0_26 contains the fixes for the mismanaged session
cookie issue that were originally released as part of JRE 1.6.0_23, JRE 1.6.0_24, and JRE 1.6.0_25.
Our standard policy is that all E-Business Suite customers can apply all
JRE updates to end-user desktops from JRE 1.6.0_03 and higher. We test
all new JRE releases in parallel with the JRE development process, so
all JRE releases are considered certified with the E-Business Suite on
the same day that they're released by our Java team.
words, you do not need to wait for a certification announcement before
applying new JRE releases to your EBS users' desktops. If you wish,
your desktop administrators can enable the Java "Automatic updates"
option on your end-users' desktops.
