    Hell Souhail ELMALIH,

    If I am at your place I would start looking at link below...

    https://support.sap.com/content/dam/launchpad/en_us/pam/pam-essentials/TIP/BI%20Platform/BI%20Platform%204.1/SAP%20BusinessObjects%20BI%204%201%20Supported%20Platforms%20(PAM).pdf

    PAM link for this product is as below.

    https://apps.support.sap.com/sap/support/pam?hash=s%3DSAP%2520BusinessObject%26o%3Dmost_viewed%257Cdesc%26st%3Dl%26rpp%3D20%26page%3D1%26pvnr%3D67837800100900006540%26pt%3Dt%257Co

    As far SAP note : 2112338 - List of Bundled Tomcat and JVM versions shipped with each (support pack) SP of SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence 4.0/4.1/4.2

    You need to upgrade your SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform support pack (If it is not on SP9 or SP10). Since you mentioned 4.1 only its difficult to say it will support java version or not.

    I would prefer to upgrade SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform with new support pack which can lead in to less issues.

    Hope this resolve your question.

    Thank you

    Yogesh

    1. you can't change Java that is used by BO
    2. You can change java being used by tomcat. See PAM for supported versions of java and tomcat.
