ERROR DESCRIPTION:

Ship Java 8 SR6 FP35 for WebSphere Application Server traditional bundled Java 8 

LOCAL FIX: 
None

PROBLEM SUMMARY: 
Ship Java 8 SR6 FP35 for WebSphere Application Server traditional bundled Java 8 

USERS AFFECTED:
This combination of WebSphere Application Server and Java is available with fix pack 855.11 and later.

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: 
Ship Java 8 SR6 FP35 for WebSphere Application Server traditional bundled Java 8 

RECOMMENDATION:
Apply this i-fix to your SDK to upgrade or install bundled Java 8 to Java 8 SR6 FP35.

This i-fix includes two possible upgrade scenarios:

a) If applied to WebSphere 8.5.5.11 or later where bundled Java 8 is installed, it will upgrade your bundled Java 8 to SR6 FP35.
b) If applied to WebSphere 8.5.5.11 or later where the original Java 6 is installed, it will remove Java 6 and replace it with bundled Java 8 SR6 FP35. All profiles and WebSphere infrastructure will be upgraded to use bundled Java 8.

As of 8.5.5.19, Linux PPC64 LE now supports bundled Java 8.  Please discontinue use of the extension offering Java 8 and move to use the bundled java 8.

NOTE:

On AIX, HP-UX Linux, Solaris and Windows: In WebSphere 8.5 or 8.5.5, using Java 6, 7, and 7.1, the java.security file was not serviceable, meaning that it was not replaced when a fix pack or an i-fix was applied.  With Java 8, that file became serviceable, so it will be overwritten with fix packs and i-fixes.  When applying this i-fix the WAS_HOME/java1.8_xx/jre/lib/security/java.security file will be backed up and placed at WAS_HOME/java1.8_xx/jre/lib/security/java.security.bak.  If you have previously updated this file, you will need to merge your changes into the new copy.

On z/OS: The java.security file was always serviceable.  Since no behavior change was implemented, no back up will be created.



PROBLEM CONCLUSION: 
Applying this i-fix will upgrade or install bundled Java 8 to Java 8 SR6 FP35 (Oracle 1.8.0_u301).

The fixes in this Java SDK are found here .

When downloading the fix from fix central, please also download the readme.txt with instructions for installation.
