The Java Support Package Manager (JSPM) is replaced by the Software Update Manager (SUM).
SAP strongly recommends that you use SUM for all Java maintenance scenarios for SAP NetWeaver-based systems.
The latest SUM version is available with SL Toolset 1.0 on the SAP Service Marketplace at: http://service.sap.com/sltoolset -> Software Logistics Toolset 1.0.
For detailed information on JSPM replacement, see SAP Note 1589311 and the document "JSPM_support_strategy.pdf" attached to it.
