Many of us have struggled with different versions of JAVA causing problems with Tridion and I recognise that the What is the newest version of Java 6 supported on Tridion 2011 SP1 HR1? question is very relevant and the answers will be very useful.

However, this seems like a very limited scope (possibly a good thing). Would the question be better as What versions of Java are supported and proven to work for Tridion 2011 SP1 HR1?. This would encourage answers listing all versions to be given- not just giving the latest version.

I guess someone could list all of the supported and proven versions in their answer, but I wonder if the question could be made more useful for future visitors.

You have the power to edit the question - it looks like people are giving those sorts of answers anyway but you're free to edit the question and leave a comment explaining your edits. I'd have said you have a good point.

  • Thanks Rob. I didn't want to edit the question as it may affect the readability of some of the answers given and upset the asker. I wondered about leaving a comment suggesting that the user updates the question themselves. Commented Jun 20, 2013 at 11:59

I agree with your points, but the Question poster need to think from that perspective along with just getting his query resolve.

Regardless, I have updated my answer to inclined it in the direction you are looking for :)
