Java version is part of the properties that RPG passes to the JVM when RPG starts java. As far as I know, the RPG compiler generates it. The new java environments print this message when you attempt to start them with this property as the new java environments don't use it anymore and they want you to know they're going to ignore it. The J9 JVM's rely on the JAVA_HOME environment variable being set with the path to the desired version of the JDK.

I don't have a V7R1 system to try this on, but you might try recompiling the RPG modules that call the java methods and rebinding the programs or service programs. It is very likely that Barbara Morris and the crew changed the compilers.

Subject: java.version message

Ever since we upgraded to V7R1 and whenever an RPGLE that uses a call to java starts the JVM, I get a printed page with the following message:

"The java.version property was detected as input. This property is used as output only and has no effect on the JVM initialization."

I googled that message and found a few older posts that referenced '' but I can't find that file in the IFS.

I also checked the authority for incorrect permissions to QOpenSys directory for *PUBLIC - (not sure what they should be but *PUBLIC has everything except Exclude).

Anybody have any idea how to suppress/eliminate this message?

Thanks, Jerry
