Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1282623
apache-jasper specifically requires java-1.6.0
Last modified: 2017-03-21 07:37:07 EDT
Description of problem:
apache-jasper has Requires: java-1.6.0-devel, even though it should work with newer versions of java.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum -y install java-1.7.0 java-1.7.0-devel
2. yum -y install apache-jasper
java-1.6.0-openjdk is installed as a dependency
no java 6 runtime installed
From communication with Java maint and OpenJDK teams - "apache-jasper will need to requires java-1.7.0-devel directly" due to concerns over OpenJDK 1.7 providing java-devel.
I have a scratch-build: https://brewweb.devel.redhat.com/taskinfo?taskID=10388829 which has fixed the problem using the new buildroot and setting the BR and R to use java-devel.
Moving out to RHEL 6.9 for re-evaluation
Patch has been built into: apache-jasper-5.5.28-4.el6
