Support and Compatibility
CVP Call Studio
Run the supported default Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version as mentioned in this table:
CVP Studio Version
Default JRE Versions
Note: A JRE upgrade is not supported on Call Studio. This limitation is due to the eclipse and plugins that do not support a later version of JRE.
The current list of supported JRE versions is shown in this table:
Default JRE Versions
Additional JRE Versions Tested for Support
Note: Check the supported JRE version before you upgrade the current installation. Any other versions (earlier or later) that are not listed in the previous table are not supported.
Use the JREUpdate.bat script in order to complete a minor update of the JRE version on your Unified CVP Server. For example, the script does a minor update from JRE version 1.6.0_24 to 1.6.0_81.
Note: The script does not support a major upgrade of JRE versions. For example, the JREUpdate.bat script cannot complete an upgrade from JRE version 1.6.0_81 to 1.7.0_45.
Download and install the preferred Java Development Kit (JDK) version on your personal computer.
Copy the JRE folder available within the installed JDK to a known location on the Unified CVP Server.
The JRE folder is available inside the root folder of the JDK installation. For example, C:\JRE or C:\jdk1.7.0_67\jre.
Unzip the JREUpdate.zip contents to a known location on your CVP Server.
For example, C:\Cisco\CVP\bin.
In order to update the JRE version on the Unified CVP Server, run this script from the command prompt:
C:\Cisco\CVP\bin >JREUpdate.bat apply C:\JRE
The script executes and the CVP JRE gets updated to the new version. Ensure that the script output displays the updated JRE version.
The JREUpdate.bat script takes a backup of the old JRE at C:\Cisco\CVP\jre.old.
In order to revert to the previous backup version of JRE, run this script from the command prompt:
Note: The CVP JRE contains JConsole tool. After a successful update to the JRE, the tool is available inside the backup folder only - jre.old/bin. In case you need to debug issues, use the tool directly from within the backup folder.
