To upgrade the jdk in the $ORACLE_HOME of the dbconsole/rdbms.  Please note, that only the minor java version can be updated.  

For example, by default the dbconsole ships with java 1.5.0_51.  The goal of this document is to upgrade the minor java version to 1.5.0_81.   Do not update to Java JDK 1.6 or higher. The update has to be for the minor version - 1.5.0_x.   Only jdk version 1.5.0_x is supported.

Upgrading the jdk to the minor java version is a requirement when following this reference:

<Note:1946195.1> CVE-2014-3566 Instructions to Mitigate the SSL v3.0 Vulnerability (aka "Poodle Attack") in Oracle Database Control

Note this solution does not apply to the version of the database, nor does it apply to the 12c versions, where Enterprise manager Database Control is no longer included.
This procedure does not apply toe the jdk associated with the IBM AIX platform.
