    The z/OS 2.1 upgrade includes the most recent Java version, what changes are required to the TOMCAT Server(that is used for Web Administrator for CA ACF2) for a JAVA upgrade?

     

    When the JAVA version is upgraded on a lpar the following changes need to be made

    to the Apache TOMCAT server.

     

    1. Edit the TOMCAT procedure in the CA Web Administrator for ACF2 CD7NJCL library and make the following changes:

      - Change the TOMCAT procedure LIBRARY variable to point to your PDS JAVA.SIEALNKE library.
        ie. LIBRARY='MVSDE28.JAVA.SIEALNKE',
      - Change TOMCAT procedure VERSION variable for JAVA version,
        ie.  VERSION='76'
    2. Edit the TOMENV member in theCA Web Administrator for ACF2 CD7NJC library and make the following change:

      - Change the TOMENV member JAVA_HOME environment variable to the base path of the JDK.
        ie. export JAVA_HOME=/u/users/java64bt/v7r0m0/usr/lpp/java/J7.0_64

     

    After making the changes the TOMCAT server should be re-started.
