Java Java Java Java Java Chameleon, the PTFs come and go, they come and go. And in this case, during a pretty slow week in PTF Land, all of the four 7.X releases of the IBM i operating system got their patches. Even the mostly quiet IBM i 7.1, which is on extended-extended life support these days but still pretty popular. Java updates on IBM i 7.1? Whodathunkit?
