JAVA4|5|6|7 for AIX

Maybe you are keeping up with AIX updates, maybe not. Are you aware that AIX service packs (SP) and TL (Technology Levels) do not have the latest SR (Service Release) or SR-SP (Service Release Service Pack) included? I know I did not - for way too long. And knowing this for quite awhile, but still not acting on it often enough I decided to try and keep better track of the latest Java updates for AIX. For the whole history you can look at the IBM site (see link below) - for myself, I am only interested in what I can use today.

AIX LifeCycle Announcement - changes effective 31-Oct-2014
User Rating: / 0

25 February 2014 - IBM made a new announcement regarding TL/SP lifecycle support of AIX. The key point is that AIX 6.1 TL7 and AIX 7.1 TL1 reach end-of-support effective 31-October-2014. The basic support policy for AIX is that they are supported "for the life" of the release. One a TL level reaches "end of life (EOL)" an update to a newer TL may be required in order top receive a fix or ifix.

To check your current AIX level run "oslevel -s". To verify this oslevel, as well as see the history of probable TL/SP updates use: "lslpp -h bos.rte.install"

Is Linux Linux?
User Rating: / 2

Linux is Linux - so they say.

People say that Linux is Linux - implying that Linux within itself is more UNIX than UNIX is. I am tending to disagree.
I have been active on various UNIX flavors since 1979 with the focus on AIX flavor since 1996.
