Error description

  • New installation of 8.5.5.11 has an option to install with
    embedded Java SDK 6 or embedded Java SDK 8. The default
    selection is Java 8 in GUI mode.
    
    With 8.5.5.11 providing option to install JAVA 6 or JAVA 8 it
    is hard to tell from versionInfo what is default java being
    used.
    
    versionInfo should show if client has JAVA 6 or JAVA 8.0.
    Client will not know what ifix they should apply for java and
    can cause many PMRs and confusion for clients.
    
    Current versionInfo we get is :
    
    C:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer855\bin>cd
    C:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin
    
    C:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin>versionInfo
