Upgrade plan:

Existing customers using Java CAPS 5.1.0 and 5.1.1 are encouraged to upgrade to newer releases of Java CAPS. The current GA release available as on the date of this announcement is Java CAPS 5.1.3. However as Java CAPS 5.1.0 customers will continue to have support for some time (see section Key Dates), they can evaluate using Java CAPS releases that are on the road map, such as Java CAPS 5.2 scheduled for release in Q4FY08 (i.e. Q2CY08) or a 5.2+ release.

Upgrading from Java CAPS 5.1.0, 5.1.1, or 5.1.2 to 5.1.3 may be performed as an in-place upgrade or via a fresh install and export/import. Upgrade information is available from Java CAPS documentation including the 5.1.3 installation guide which can be found at http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/820-0938. Users will have to refer to individual product documentation for upgrade information as there may be product-specific upgrade requirements. Please refer to Java CAPS 5.1.3 documentation for required products located at http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/coll/1601.3.

Key dates:

FAQ

Question:
Why is Java CAPS release 5.1.0 and 5.1.1 beginning the EOL process?

Answer:
Sun is announcing EOL for earlier releases because there are straight-forward upgrades for each of the EOL’d products and versions. The EOL support period gives adequate time for customers to move to an actively supported product/version. This action of EOL-ing older releases enables Sun to focus resources on enhancing our products to meet evolving business needs.[amazonify]::omakase::300:250[/amazonify]
