Save The Dates: Phasing Out Java SE 7 Support

This post contains important information for Excelsior JET customers that plan to keep using Java SE 7 for an extended period of time. You need not read it if you are going to move all your Java developments over to Java SE 8 and upgrade to Excelsior JET 11 soon.

  1. As you know, Java SE 7 reached its End of Public Updates earlier this year. Excelsior JET 10.5 MP2 supports Java SE 7 Update 80, which is the last public Java SE 7 update issued by Oracle. Future Maintenance Packs for version 10.5 will only contain bug fixes.
  2. Excelsior JET 11, due in September, will only support Java SE 8.
  3. We will continue providing technical support for Excelsior JET versions 9, 10, and 10.5 to holders of active Support Contracts until the respective End of Life dates of those versions:

      Excelsior JET 9 – Dec 26, 2015
      Excelsior JET 10 – Jul 23, 2016
      Excelsior JET 10.5 – Feb 03, 2017

Please factor these dates into your plans for maintaining Java SE 7 versions of your natively compiled applications.

Should you have any questions on the above subject matter, please email our Sales Dept. at
