Currently we are using  microfocus server express 5.1 wrappack 7, is there a wrappack that supports jdk8+?

Thanks in advance,

    Hello Dana Shaw,

    Yes, Java 8 is supported in later Server Express 5.1 Wrap Packs. You didn't mention the platform in use, but for example Server Express 5.1 Wrap Pack 19 includes support for Oracle Java 8 on Red Hat Linux 5.x and 6.x , as reflected in the $COBDIR/docs/env.txt file provided within that product version and platform:

     

    Java version = 1.8.0_31

    Java vendor = Oracle Corporation

    Java OS name = Linux

    Java OS arch = i386

    Java OS version = 2.6.18-348.el5

     

    Java version = 1.8.0_31

    Java vendor = Oracle Corporation

    Java OS name = Linux

    Java OS arch = amd64

    Java OS version = 2.6.18-348.el5

     

    Just FYI, OpenJDK (and RHEL 7.x and newer) are supported in our newer Visual COBOL product.
