This note assumes that you have read and are familiar with SAS Note 49296: "Using Java 7 with SAS® 9.3 TS1M2."
SAS 9.3 TS1M2 now supports Java 7. Consequently, you need to reconfigure your SAS installation to be able to use Java 7.
This SAS Note guides you through modifying your existing SAS Foundation installation in the z/OS operating environment to include Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7.
Important: Before starting this process, read through the entire note so that you are aware of all preliminary requirements and potential issues as well as optional ways to accomplish these tasks.
In this section, you edit your existing SAS environment to recognize the new Java 7 installation.
Edit the sassw.config file located in the SASOME directory:
Here is an example:
Submit the following code in batch or interactive SAS:
proc options option=jreoptions; run;
proc javainfo; run;
The output should show that you are accessing JRE 1.7:
java.fullversion = JRE 1.7.0 IBM J9 2.6 z/OS s390-31 20130205_137358 (JIT enabled, AOT enabled):J9VM -
R26_Java726_SR4_20130205_1656_B137358:JIT - r11.b03_20130131_32403:GC - R26_J130205_1656_B137358:J9CL -
