Java Patches for Solaris Packages (Doc ID 1397756.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 10, 2017

Applies to:

Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 1.5.0 to 8
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on x86 (32-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (32-bit)

Goal

This doc describes what patches are available to update the JRE/JDK packages on the Solaris Operating System (versions 8-11) and where to download them.

Notes:
  • Any customer that has a Java SE Support license can download any of the JRE/JDK posted on MOS.  Additionally, any customer who has support for an Oracle Product that requires Java SE as a component can also download any version of the JRE/JDK that is required to run that supported product.  See also <note 1557737.1>.  Also, Java SE 7 and later are not bundled with Solaris 8, 9, or 10.  Users of those versions of Solaris are not immediately entitled to use that version of Java SE.
  • To get a 64-bit JVM on Solaris, both the 64-bit and the 32-bit JVM must be installed (Java SE 5.0, Java SE 6, and Java SE 7 only), starting with Java SE 8, the 32-bit implementation of Java for the Solaris operating system has been removed.
  • To patch a 64-bit JVM on Solaris, the 64-bit and the 32-bit Patch must be installed, at the same update release (Java SE 5.0, Java SE 6, and Java SE 7 only), starting with Java SE 8, the 32-bit implementation of Java for the Solaris operating system has been removed.
  • You may wish to reference "Installation of Java 32 bit Solaris 8/9/10 Packages" at https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/install-solaris-139361.html#install-pkg and "Installation of Java 64 bit Solaris 8/9/10 Packages" at https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/install-solaris-64-138849.html#install-pkg for directions on how to install the Java patches.
  • Usually the package-based patches for Solaris are delayed as compared to the standard Java binary updates.
  • The Solaris patch revision does not necessarily represent the actual Java update release.
  • If you want to run a Java application that is not bundled with Solaris, we recommend to use a separate Java Runtime Environment (JRE) for it in order to be independent of the Solaris bundled JDKs. See also doc 1414485.1, it lists the Well Known Patch IDs that will always point to the latest update of Java SE.
  • The table below lists only Java patches for Solaris 8, 9, 10 SVR4 packages and Solaris 11 IPS packages and it lists only patches that have been uploaded to MOS since January 1, 2011.
  • 7u67 involved only one bug fix (JDK-8050875) which fixed a Windows-only regression introduced when 7u65 was released on July 15, 2014. There should be no expected update to the Solaris pipeline for 7u67.
  • The Solaris IPS Repository patch contains JDK6, JDK7 and JDK8 packages which can be applied to a local Solaris Support repository at Solaris version 11.2.6.4.0 or above. The IPS Installation Guide includes a script and README to assist.
  • "Last Updated" represents the date when a patch was last updated, usually that is the date when a patch is prepared for download.
