Today I installed Maven30-rhel-6 using these instructions:

That package installed successfully. I did this in case it was a requirement for the "rh-java-common" package.

Then I re-attempted to install the "rh-java-common" package described in the ticket but still resulted in the same problem.
I also attempted the re-install after enabling maven:
  sudo scl enable maven30 bash
But still no difference in the outcome originally described.

Note I used 'sudo' for the above commands but then tried the same with 'su' and saw no change.
Comment 3 Mikolaj Izdebski 2015-09-28 03:07:06 EDT
Confirmed - it is reproducible for me as well.
Comment 4 Mikolaj Izdebski 2015-09-28 03:38:32 EDT
The reason is simple - there is no rh-java-common package because this collection is not supposed to be installed directly. Installation instructions are incorrect.

Copr team: Can we remove steps 4 and 5 from installation instructions at https://www.softwarecollections.org/en/scls/rhscl/rh-java-common/ and add a note like: "This collection provides common components used by other collections and is not supposed to be installed directly by users."
Comment 5 Miroslav Suchý 2015-09-28 05:13:37 EDT
I can alter the change, but I would rather add there documentation how other collections should use it as well.

So how other collections should use it?
Comment 6 Mikolaj Izdebski 2015-09-28 09:31:20 EDT
I'm not sure I understand the question. Can you be more specific?

rh-java-common is just a set of various shared libraries and tools used by other collections. It was created to avoid package duplication between different SCLs - collections like maven30 or thermostat1 depend on packages from rh-java-common. Users shouldn't need to directly install any packages from rh-java-common (with exception of YUM repo definition package, which is not strictly part of rh-java-common, but it is provided in the same repo).
