re: 9 Must-Know Java Security Facts

re: 9 Must-Know Java Security Facts
The fact of the matter is, Java 7 breaks some apps that require Java 6 to run. Until our vendors (yes, more than one) can update their code, we're stuck maintaining the older version on our systems.

re: 9 Must-Know Java Security Facts
The sad thing is there are companies such as ADP who do not support Java 7 to access their timecard systems. So if an enterprise uses ADP how can they do timekeeping and payroll and remain up to date on Java???
