We have a security compliance to meet. We have upgraded our Solaris 8 with the latest Java JDK 1.6.12. No issues. However, the requirements are to either remove the old Java JRE version 1.4.2.06 . Also, JDK version 1.4.2.04, 1.4.2.05, 1.4.2.06 or upgrade them to 22.214.171.124.
How does the versioning work? Is it "safe" to remove the old versions with Solaris 8 and just keep the JDK 1.6.12? Or do I need to upgrade the old versions to the latest 126.96.36.199 to satisfy some requirement for Solaris 8. From what I understand Solaris 8 will not be supported in the near future. Is this true? If this is true, how do I handle the JAVA installs?
