    Default JDK Update possible/recommended

    After updating to ZCS 6.0.7 NE, I noticed that the JDK version is quite old (1.6.0_16, available from Sun is 1.6.0_21).
    I wonder if it was possible/recommended and supported simply to install a later JDK release and point the java/-Softlink to the new directory.

    No, it's not recommended to upgrade it and modifying Zimbra in that way will invalidate your support for NE.

    Thanks for your reply.

    In that case I would like to request to keep the JDK release more up to date as from our experience (Java software development) the higher subreleases of the JDK are more stable and often faster than the older ones.

    All requests for bug fixes, RFEs etc. should go in bugzilla and you should search before posting a report in case one has already been filed, in this case I'd suggest you search bugzilla for 'jdk' and see what turns up. You can vote on bugs/RFEs that you're interested in (or raise support cases if necessary) and you'll be notified of their progress, you'll also find details of the target version for any bug/RFE in the Product Portal.
