I am currently running JIRA v5.2. I switched Java from JRE to JDK in order to make better use of the JavaMelody plugin.
I see from the "Supported Platforms" pages that JIRA v6.0.x no longer supports Java 1.6 and requires Java 1.7.
I recall from upgrading to JIRA v5.2 that that upgrade automatically upgraded the Java JRE... so I expect the upgrade to JIRA 6.0.x to switch me to Java 1.7.
But will it switch me back from JDK to JRE?
Thanks for the response. I think I should have phrased my question...
"Does JIRA v6.0.x upgrade perform an upgrade to JDK or only to JRE"? or maybe
"Is it best to upgrade my JDK to 1.7.0_25 before upgrading to JIRA v6.0.x"?
I had read the "Installing Java" documentation. It won't be a problem to check on JAVA_HOME and, frankly, it won't really be a problem to perform a Java upgrade separately from the JIRA upgrade. I just wanted to understand things better so that I can plan better.... I need to schedule someone's time to carry out the actual work. Even if the work is on our Test Server.
