Note -  Java versions 5.0 and 1.4 and Oracle Solaris OS versions 8 and 9 are past their end of service life (EOSL) dates. These versions are listed here for completeness and in no way constitute a change to Oracle's support policy or an extension to the EOSL dates.

Note -  When running Java 8 and Java 7 in the Oracle Solaris 10 OS, you must use Oracle Solaris 10 Update 9 or a newer supported version.

Caution

Caution  -  These older versions of the JDK are provided to help developers debug issues in older systems. They are not updated with the latest security patches and are not recommended for use in production. For production use, Oracle recommends downloading the latest JDK and JRE versions and allow them to auto-update.
