Note –

Please note that this is the last release that Sun will ship new versions of Java Enterprise System for Solaris 8 and RedHat 2.1. The next release of Java Enterprise System will support Solaris 9 and 10 (x86 and SPARC) and RedHat 3 and 4. This does not affect the support life that customers obtain for Java Enterprise System released prior to that date. We recommend customers commence their transition planning to a newer version of Solaris and RedHat.
