IBM Products that leverage IBM WebSphere Application Server (7.0, 8.0 and 8.5) and Oracle Java 6 are End of Support on the 31st December 2018. After the 30th April 2018, support for Oracle Java 6 will be limited to usage and known problems with possible updates for critical security fixes through the end of 2018.
IBM Netcool Products leverage components such as Oracle Java 6 within the core product and GUI Technologies, and as these Oracle Java 6 components go End of Support, this directly affects IBM’s ability to support the products and provide updates for critical security fixes.
The impact is across a number of products within the Netcool portfolio that utilise the Tivoli Integrated Portal. The products approaching end of support as a result are listed in detail here. We recommend upgrading as soon as possible.
