Symptoms

As part of critical patch update, we were asked to update the MySQL Server & Java version. As such we updated the MySQL Server & Java. This is already being done across some iSales instances & some are in the queue.

Before Patch:
MySQL Version – 5.5.1.6
Java Version – 7

After Patch
MySQL Version – 5.5.59
Java Version – 8.0.1610.12

After the patch, for some of the iSales instances, we found one issue. While trying to open the Current server-side config from utility-> configuration tool, an Unexpected error occurred. This is not happening in all the patch instances. If we restore the old JRE(jre7), then the issue is resolved. But since we need to update the JRE version, please help to look into this.
