    WebSphere Application Server in the install_root/java
    directory will be end of service in April 2018. A warning
    message should be displayed during fix pack update to
    recommend customers install and switch the runtime JVM to
    IBM WebSphere Java Technology Edition version 8.
    

Problem conclusion

  • An end of service warning message for IBM SDK Java Technology
    Edition version 6 will be displayed during IBM WebSphere
    Application Server fix pack update. Customers are recommended
    to start using Java 8 by installing and switching the
    WebSphere Application Server runtime JVM to IBM WebSphere
    Java Technology Edition version 8.
    
    For a new installation of WebSphere Application Server
    version 8.5.5.11, customers can choose to install with IBM SDK
    Java Technology Edition version 8 or version 6 in the
    install_root/java directory, where IBM SDK
    Java Technology Edition version 8 is the default choice.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.11.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
