Hello everybody,

we are running SQL Anywhere/MobiLink on Windows. In MobiLink we have some events implemented in Java. Now SQL Anywhere comes with Java version 8, but that is no longer in support by Oracle.

Is there a way to replace it with Java 12? Any recommendations?

Thanks and best regards, Alex

Hm, by default SQL Anywhere 17 comes with a SAP JRE instead of an Oracle JRE, so I would expect the limited support by Oracle should not matter...

The -jrepath option for the -sl java defines the jre to use.

If you are using the SQLA JDBC driver, I'd hold off trying to use JRE 11 or later just yet. A fix is forthcoming that addresses a crash in the JDBC driver when using these newer versions. The fix will be in or later.

Note that the DBConnectionContext.getConnection() and ServerContext.makeConnection() methods use the SQLA JDBC driver.
