IBM has announced that IBM i 7.3 will be the last version to support jdk7 at: https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/wikis/home?lang=en#!/wiki/IBM%20i%20Technology%20Updates/page/Java%20products%20and%20options%20on%20IBM%20i I believe IBM i 7.3 should stop using it in IBM i supplied programs to make ready. I ran the following: CHGAUD OBJ('/QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/JavaVM/jdk70') OBJAUD(*ALL) SUBTREE(*ALL) Waited 24 hours SELECT journal_code, journal_entry_type, "CURRENT_USER", "JOB_NAME", "JOB_USER", "JOB_NUMBER", PROGRAM_NAME, PROGRAM_LIBRARY, PATH_NAME FROM TABLE (QSYS2.Display_Journal( JOURNAL_LIBRARY => 'QSYS', JOURNAL_NAME => 'QAUDJRN', STARTING_RECEIVER_LIBRARY => 'QGPL', STARTING_RECEIVER_NAME => '*CURCHAIN', STARTING_TIMESTAMP => TIMESTAMP('2019-04-01-07.29.00') )) X WHERE JOURNAL_ENTRY_TYPE NOT IN('AD', 'ZC') -- Created by CHGAUD AND PATH_NAME LIKE '%jdk7%' ;
And the only hit was QCLNSYSLOG which I believe to be part of GO CLEANUP.
Ensure we are using the latest JDK for security and patch reasons. Be ready for future release upgrades.
