Pega Java Compatibility
We have a question about Pega and Java compatibility.
Our Current Pega platform version is Pega 7.1.5. And our Java platform version is Java 7. Our system is facing some vulnerability issues with this Java version(7). To fix these vulnerability issues we have to upgrade Java version to Java 8.
As per latest Platform support document, the lowest Pega 7 platform version which supports Java 8 is Pega 7.1.8.
But, we are looking for an answer for the question - is there any option to use Java 8 as Java platform version without upgrading Pega platform version ?
Please suggest us.

I would not recommend trying this. But this is a good problem to have, maybe this will be enough reason for your management to consider a Pega upgrade as well. 7.1.5 is pretty old in the the grand scheme of things.
So if you must upgrade your platform, that is also a good time to have Pega go along for the ride ;)
