Check Java version in prerequisite scanner

We recently updated one of our customers to ITNM FixPack 10. During preparation for the change, we checked the system requirements using the prerequisite scanner. Unfortunately, the prereq checker doesn't seem to check for the java version required. As a post install step, some configuration is done that requires Java8.

    The version of Java required for ITNM is driven by the Websphere component of the solution. The pre-req scanner is not the appropriate vehicle for this requirement. This will not be implemented at this time.
