Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Selection of OpenJDK version family now remembered across updates Prior to this update, when a user had multiple JDKs installed, `yum update` always updated to the newest JDK even if the user had previously selected some lower-prioritized JDK. This update introduces the `--family` switch for `chkconfig`, which makes sure that the selected JDK remains in the version `family` after system updates.

Hi Jirka,

This bug has been selected for inclusion in 7.3 Release Notes. Could you please add info to the Docs Text field, so that I can use it to formulate the release note?

Perhaps it could be lumped together with bug #1296414?


Comment 3 jiri vanek 2016-04-12 10:56:59 UTC
Yes it can be merged with 1296414

Comment 6 Robert Krátký 2016-08-21 16:07:29 UTC
Hi Jirka,

Could you please check the Release Notes text?

Thank you.

Comment 8 jiri vanek 2016-09-05 13:51:06 UTC
hm:( The new docs are not describing --fmaily at all. Robert, is --family described properly in chkconfig update?
If so, then the description is ok.

Comment 9 Robert Krátký 2016-09-05 14:27:59 UTC
Hi Jirka,

When you say that the current text doesn't describe it 'at all', do you mean you'd like more detailed usage information? I intentionally abbreviated your original write up.

There's a very detailed description of --family in BZ#1291340.

Comment 10 jiri vanek 2016-09-05 14:40:05 UTC
Yup. if BZ#1291340's docs will remain, then you shortened one is ok. TY!
