There is an urgent bulletin published today.
All EBS desktop administrators must disable JRE Auto-Update for their end-users immediately. See this externally-published article:
- URGENT BULLETIN: Disable JRE Auto-Update for All E-Business Suite End-Users
Why is this required?
If you have Auto-Update enabled, your JRE 1.6 version will be updated to JRE 7.
- This may happen as early as July 3, 2012.
- This will definitely happen after Sept. 7, 2012, after the release of 1.6.0_35 (6u35).
Oracle Forms is not compatible with JRE 7 yet. JRE 7 has not been certified with Oracle E-Business Suite yet. Oracle E-Business Suite functionality based on Forms -- e.g. Financials -- will stop working if you upgrade to JRE 7.
Java 1.6.0_33 is certified with Oracle E-Business Suite. See this externally-published article:
- Java JRE 1.6.0_33 Certified with Oracle E-Business Suite
