EOL for RFA Java Clarification

The near-term need for us is to retire Java 11 by the EOL date in October but we’ve discovered that RFA 7.x is not compatible with Java 17. It isn’t clear if RFA 8.x is a drop-in replacement or if there are infrastructure dependencies with the new version of the API. Are there documents / team that can provide information to guide client through this? Please advise...

If you are planning to implement new Real-Time application(s) using Java, I recommend you check the strategic Enterprise Message API - Java edition (EMA API) which is a part of Real-Time SDK Java edition.

Hello @andrew.thammavongsa

Unfortunately, the document is not available online. It is in the RFA API package only. You can download the API package from the links that I have provided above.
