Support for Java 8 with webMethods 9.7, 9.6 and 9.5

As outlined in the Oracle JDK Support Roadmap, after April 2015, Oracle will not post further updates of Java SE 7 to its public download sites.

We are in the process of certifying our older webMethods releases with Java 8. We will officially support Java 8 with webMethods 9.7 from end of March 2015. For webMethods 9.6 and 9.5, we are currently testing with Java 8 and based on the issues that need to be addressed from testing these products, we plan to support these versions by end of April 2015.

We encourage our customers who are planning an upgrade to consider our latest release which will GA in April 2015 as it will support Java 8.
