What is being done about Java 8 and Java upgrades in general?
We need to be able to apply timely security updates. The version of Java being used by Wowza is no longer supported.
This document suggests newer versions can be used. Can we go to the latest version(s) of Java that are still seeing security updates.
“If you can’t or don’t want to use the version of Java that installs with Wowza Streaming Engine and you don’t use Wowza Streaming Engine Manager, you can install and use a server edition of Java 8 Update 91 (8u91) or later.
