This is really weird. I am guess something strange on your /qopensys file
system. A quick check could be done by following  commands:
call qp2term
/QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/JavaVM/jdk80/64bit/bin/java -version
/qopensys/QIBM/ProdData/JavaVM/jdk80/64bit/bin/java -version
Check the outputs of them. 
Of course, If you want, you can open a PMR to IBM for further
investigation. thx.
Best regards.

Most definitely *NOT*, because the object here is *NOT* to change the
default JVM at the system level, but to change the JVM at the *job*
level, which then gets inherited by the batch job that it spawns off.

Changing a customer's default JVM system-wide would be arrogant
presumption, and could break some other product!

And once again, this is code that works perfectly on *every other
installation*, and works perfectly with Java 6 on the *same box.*
