We are currently running two instances of Cascade-7.12.5 under Java-1.6.0_35 and may need to upgrade Java to version 7 or 8 to alleviate "Logjam" vulnerability issues. Can we upgrade to Java-1.7 or Java-1.8 without any issues with regards to Cascade-7?

    Hi Jim,

    With Cascade 7.12.5 you can upgrade to Java 7 but can not upgrade to Java 8.

    Once you upgrade to Cascade 7.14+, you'll be required to upgrade to Java 8 as that is the only JVM on which the application will run.

    Let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Thanks!

    I assume that all that is required is to stop Cascade, install Java-1.7,
    and restart Cascade. Is there anything that needs to be done?

    You would just need to make sure that your boot script is configured to use Java 7. For example, if you're using Linux/*nix, you'd need to:

    • Modify cascade.sh
    • Change the top line (JAVA_OPTS) to point to the new JRE

    If you're using Windows (command line), you'd need to follow those same steps but for the cascade.bat file.

    The Windows service is a bit different. You'd need to:

    • Open Windows Explorer
    • Navigate to tomcat/bin within the Cascade installation folder
    • Double-click cascadew.exe
    • Click the Java tab
    • In the JVM field, browse to the jvm.dll file within the new Java installation
    • Click Apply/OK
    • Restart the service

    Let me know if you have any questions regarding any of those steps.

    Thanks!
