The following is a product and support notice for Micro Focus CORBA customers. The information below provides further detail related to the release of Oracle JDK 11 and its impact on Micro Focus CORBA applications. This notice also provides further detail on how Micro Focus will assist its customers during this event. In JDK 11, the Java EE and CORBA modules were removed. These modules were deprecated for removal in Oracle JDK 9.

Within the latest release of Micro Focus CORBA products, our Premier CORBA offerings will ship with the required files to enable your applications to continue working as they did prior to JDK 11. The files required will ship with VisiBroker 8.5.6, Orbix 6.3.11 and Orbix 3.3.15 products. This Service Pack release will address this issue as well as provide full compatibility for Oracle JDK 11.
