On the Matrix document

HP Support provided to us

for PPM 9.31, page 13, we see this:

 

PPM Workbench Requirements

Java™ Plug-In Requirements

Access to the PPM Workbench requires an appropriate version of the Oracle Java plug-in installed.

Supported versions include:

l

Java 7 Update 51 or later update (32-bit and 64-bit) for all supported browsers

The Java plug-in is automatically installed the first time a user accesses the PPM Workbench.

 

For the document update history portion we see this:

Hello Irina,

 

According to the release notes for 9.31:

 

PPM Center version 9.31 supports both JDK 7 and JDK 8.


If you use JDK 8 for PPM Server platforms, the server configuration parameter SERVER_MAX_PERM_
SIZE stops working, and perm size would be included in heap size which is controlled by the parameter SERVER_MAX_HEAP_SIZE. Therefore, HP recommends that you use 64-bit JVM.


The following warning may appear when you deploy JDK 8, however, you can safely ignore this warning and continue the deployment:


Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=256m; support was removed in 8.0
In order to avoid compatibility issue in JDK 8, HP recommends that if you use X.509 certificates with
RSA keys less than 1024 bits, you should update the RSA keys size to be greater than 1024 bits.


Since both JDK 7 and JDK 8 are supported for PPM platforms, PPM Workbench supports JRE 7 and
JRE 8.

 

I hope this information is workful for you.

 

Best regards,

Fabiola Vargas
