Description Deepak Bhole 2014-10-22 19:44:47 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1155783 +++

The current OpenJDK8 RPMs in RHEL provide java* instead of java8*. This is causing them to get pulled into brew builds when they shouldn't be.

We should fix the packages asap to make them provide java8* much like OpenJDK7 RPMs provide java7*.

Comment 1 Deepak Bhole 2014-10-22 20:03:40 UTC
On second thought, rather than replacing with java8*, we should just remove them altogether to prevent customers from depending on the provides that may end up getting removed in the future. Thanks to Omair for pointing this out.
