For Layer7 products, primary support will shift from Oracle Java to AdoptOpenJDK, a popular free version of Java that derives its source from OpenJDK.
What is AdoptOpenJDK?
"AdoptOpenJDK uses infrastructure, build and test scripts to produce prebuilt binaries from OpenJDK™ class libraries and a choice of either the OpenJDK HotSpot or Eclipse OpenJ9 VM.
All AdoptOpenJDK binaries and scripts are open-source licensed and available for free." (source: https://adoptopenjdk.net/)
How does this change affect Layer7 API Management Products?This document describes the consequences of the shift to AdoptOpenJDK as they pertain to the Layer7 API Management products and components, including the Layer7 API Gateway, Layer7 Mobile API Gateway, Layer7 OAuth Toolkit, and Layer7 Rapid App Security. Our goal is to provide users with information to ensure that product deployment(s) can continue to be supported by Broadcom/CA in the future:
Questions and Answers
CA Technical Support makes a reasonable commercial effort to troubleshoot and/or resolve customer support requests that involve the use of currently supported versions of CA Products on or with "unsupported" platforms as follows:
CA Technical Support accepts support incidents (support requests) involving a software platform or a combination of software platforms that is not officially supported per the then-current CA published platform support matrices. CA troubleshoots the issue up to the point that CA has reason to believe that the problem is related to the use of software that is not specified in a then-current platform supported matrix. At such point, CA requires that the customer reproduces the problem on a fully supported combination of platforms before CA proceeds in troubleshooting the incident.
