Can I upgrade my Java to version 7, from version 6? I thought I have read that Java 7 does not work with Tridion CMS 2011, SP1?

    Java 7 will indeed not work with Tridion 2011. Tridion 2013 supports Java 7.

Java 7 is supported since Tridion 2013.


According to the online documentation, the following Java versions are supported:

Content Manager (requires login): Java (JRE or JDK) 6.0, 32-bit edition (Java is only used for publishing and searching in the Content Manager)

Content Delivery (requires login): Java 6.0, 32-bit or 64-bit edition

As Eric says, Java 7 is supported (and recommended) in Tridion 2013 but not supported for Tridion 2011 (incl. SP1).

Java 5.0 will work with Tridion 2011, but is deprecated.

UPDATE [11/07/2013]

It may also be worth looking at DanielGLB's What versions of Java are supported and proven to work for Tridion 2011 SP1 HR1? question too.
