Description Andrew John Hughes 2015-07-22 20:45:38 UTC
This is a clone of bug 1208307 which makes the same change on RHEL 6.

It follows bug 1121210 which added elliptic curve cryptography support in OpenJDK 7 for RHEL 7.2.

Comment 5 John Horne 2016-07-04 14:51:29 UTC
Can I ask what is happening with this bug fix?
It says it is fixed in version java-1.8.0-openjdk- but we are already on version java-1.8.0-openjdk- and ECC is still disabled.

Comment 6 Andrew John Hughes 2016-07-04 15:11:33 UTC
The fix is scheduled for release in RHEL 7.3.

java-1.8.0-openjdk- is a RHEL 7.3 RPM.
java-1.8.0-openjdk- is a RHEL 7.2 RPM.
