Nice! Are there any speed advantages for CF over the default Java installation? There's probably no reason to ugprade if there aren't, unless you need to access new Java features via CF of course.
I haven't run any tests. Just for now ensuring my code base works. I assume the new GC options will help. As Jaca 6 is EOL I wanted to jump ahead of Adobe and role java 7 just to see. I wont change production until Adobe give the OK.
Thanks for all the information ,it was very helpful i really like that you are providing information on core and advance java ,being enrolled in advance and core java http://www.wiziq.com/course/1779-core-and-advance-java-concepts i was looking for such information on advance and core java and your information helped me a lot. I really like that you are providing such information. Thanks.
So how exactly did you accomplish this? After I edit the jvm.config file with the JDK directory the service won't start.
@RickInstalled JDK 1.7.05In CFADMIN Changed jvm path to:C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_05\jre
@RIck I'll try .11 now.
@Rick tried just now worked fine.
hmmm... didn't work for me Paul. I tried through the CFADMIN as opposed to editing the jvm.config and I received the prompt to restart the Windows Service, but the service won't restart... it'll error out every time. I revert back to the jvm.bak file and everything's peachy again. I'm wondering what exactly the CF10 Windows Service is looking for from the Java files that it is getting from the default install and not getting from the new Java installs. I tried and it didn't work with Java 6 either. I'm wondering if I should try x86 instead of x64.
Got Java 6 working... still can't seem to get 7 working. Guess I'll just have to wait until CF10 'officially' supports 7 in the upcoming months. Thanks!
