Old java 6 compatible SSPR Collector

Hi all,

we have a client that is still on Sentinel 7.0.2. This is running on java 6.
We need to add SSPR to Sentinel, but the oldest SSPR collector I could find (NetIQ_Self-Service-Password-Reset_2011.1r3.clz.zip) does require java 7.

Anyone has an older version of this collector?

Thanks in advance,

Stefaan

Potentially Bad Advice Alert.

Have you tried the 2011.1r3 or 2011.1r4 versions just to see if they
happen to work? Other than testing, I'm not sure what in the collector
might actually care about the Java version, so I would be strongly tempted
to see if it just happens to work despite what (I presume) documentation
may state to the contrary.

Re: Old java 6 compatible SSPR Collector

Hi ab,

I tried both the r3 and r4. They both complain about the java version. The culprit (in the r3 release) is the collectorutil jar file that is compiled for java version 1.7. It might be that nothing depends on java 1.7, but without the sources, I cannot recompile for 1.6 compatibility...

Re: Old java 6 compatible SSPR Collector

Worst case (and I do not mean you should try this first,j of course), you
could perhaps find that JAR in another collector in the system and then
move it over. It may have changed, but maybe not, and any currently
working collector will have one that was built with Java 1.6 or earlier.

Other worst case, built a new collector using the logic from the SSPR
collector you want but from the SDK that is old. I'm not sure if that one
is still out there for download, but this is kind of like the first option
but a more-official way of doing it.

I did some digging before responding last time and I have not found an
earlier version of the collector; do you know it was available from the
Sentinel 6.x or 7.0.x times?

Definitely don't do this. The collectors are tested and tied to the collectorutil version they ship with, and we fix that jar very dynamically (e.g. some updates over itme have been quite frequent in terms of bug fixes and extensions).

The better option would be to manually upgrade the Sentinel JRE. I can't find a public KB for Sentinel Enterprise, but I know there is a technique that was tracked as a support document.

Note: If I'm not mistaken, upgrading to the latest 7.0 service pack (7.0.3?) I believe upgrades the JRE to Java 7.
