Issue/Introduction

How can we update the JDK version used by tomcat CA AA for a latest JDK version compatible?

Please provide us with a step-by-step guide for this process.

AA Version 9.1 SP4

Environment

Release : 9.1 SP4

Component :AuthMinder ( Arcot WebFort)

Strong Authentication

Risk Authentication

Resolution

Please make sure to go through the Platform support matrix to know the supported versions for Java, we only need Java run time envrionemt( JRE) and JDK is not needed but that will work as well.
For Tomcat We support versions  8.0.x, 8.5.x, 9.0 and Java supported ones are Oracle 7.x, 8.x, and 11, AdoptOpenJDK 8 and 11. The latest on these supported version should be fine. Please refer this link.

Platform Support Matrix for Advanced Authentication

Once you upgrade the Java version to supported series, you need to make sure Tomcat is picking up that. 

Once that is done, you can refer this document link to copy some files which are needed for Database connectivity. Detailed instructions are listed in this.
