Embedded JRE in DP 9.09 is too old and needs to be upgraded

The JRE embedded in DP 9.09 is of version 1.7.0_09. This is too old and needs to be upgraded to the lastest JRE. There has been numerous security vulnerabilties issued on JRE 1.7.0.

Hi @Wang Tek Kee,

A more recent version of Java JRE is part of Data Protector A.10.10 already. But I agree, upgrading core technology such as JRE, Wildfly, PostgreSQL regularly is a good thing if it is properly tested and does not break things.

O:\OmniBack\jre\bin>java -version
java version "1.8.0_102"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_102-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.102-b14, mixed mode)
