    It depends on your other java applications. If they were written properly without using deprecated methods and following java best practices, then they should be ok, but some java applications that were not properly written or depended on certain bugs to work, will get broken.

    If you are unsure, you can always install multiple versions of java on your system and not make the new version of java your default version and point glassfish specifically at the new version.
