gotchya - cq 5.5 doesn't work properly with JRE 1.7

I had upgraded my laptop, gleefully installed CQ5.5, and promptly was pulling tufts of hair out.

Custom Sling Servlets weren't behaving, and I was getting general issues with my CQ instance. What the dickens is going on?

Well.... I had JRE 1.7 installed, not 1.6.14

Java Virtual Machines

CQ5 operates with the following versions of the Java Virtual Machine (Runtime Environment).
Platform Support Level
Oracle JRE 1.7.x A: Supported with CQ 5.5 SP2 or newer
Oracle JRE 1.6.x A: Supported
Oracle JRE 1.5.x D: Validated
Oracle JRE 1.4.2 Z: Not supported
IBM JRE 1.6 A: Supported
IBM JRE 1.5 D: Validated
HP JRE 1.5 E: Expected to work

So there are 2 options.

1. Upgrade to SP2
2. Downgrade the JRE to 1.6.14

After I had downgraded the JRE and restarted, things returned to normal again.

If someone upgrades to SP2 experiencing similar issues, please comment below.
