As per the document ->  https://docs.oracle.com/database/121/JJDEV/chone.htm#JJDEV13628  

Only JDK 1.6 and 1.7 are supported with Oracle DB 12.1 at this time.


Question

Is JDK 1.8 certified for oracle database 12101 database? OR Any future plans?

Is there a certification Matrix or MOS Note available?


Reference Notes

Requirements for Installing Oracle Database 12.1 on Solaris 11 SPARC (Doc ID 1525614.1)

Requirements for Installing Oracle Database 12.1 on Solaris 10 SPARC (Doc ID 1517948.1)

    As an Oracle employee you should already know that ONLY Oracle can provide definitive answers to your questions.

    Since relinking Oracle is required for non-Windows platforms changing Java versions is NOT something to be done lightly. And, as that doc discusses, changing Java versions can cause significant impacts for classes that have already been loaded.

    That issue also has implications for export/import between DBs using different Java versions.

    Oracle has a history of keeping up-to-date with the march of technology so I, for one, certainly expect them to enhance their Java support at some point. After all, Oracle itself makes HEAVY use of Java for many of its utilities in particular Datapump.

    That said you really need to address your questions to Oracle directly. Any answer that I, or others, try to provide in the forums is, at best, only an educated guess. And we can't even offer a 'guess' when it comes to timing.
