An enterprise sites customer like Volkswagen and Liebherr will deploy Java 1.7 on the clients centralized as soon as Java 1.6 gets obsolete / out of support.
Support for Java 1.7 for Windchill 9.1 and 10.0 is therefore absolutely needed. Please make a plan how for certify Java 1.7 and how to deal with this situation.
Homeland Security has issued an advisory on disabling Java.
And have notified all DOE/DOD facilities on blocking Java 6.
This is turning into a CRITICAL ISSUE.
Because of the security gaps in any revisions other than the latest Java revision, our Windchill experience has become quite difficult. My estimation of priority is CRITICAL, given the risk that we will not be able to run Windchill applications.
Java 1.7 is no longer supported by Oracle. Windchill 9.1 and 10.0 are both now in extended support, in which PTC does not normally introduce new platform support.
