Coldfusion upgrade question

Last Modified: 2015-03-09

I'm the admin of site running CF 9 with JRE 6.
I'm looking to upgrade CF/JRE mostly because I need to be able to connect to a web service that is not currently working. I've tried updating my Java cert but that didn't work. The vendor I'm trying to connect to has suggested I upgrade to the 'latest' version of both CF and JRE.

I know CF is up to 11 and JRE is up to 8, but I wanted to ask what the least painful upgrade would be. In other words, has the absolute latest version of CF and JRE changed so much that if I try to upgrade I will be hitting my head against the wall? If so, what is a good compromise -- CF 10?
Thanks to any and all opinions.
