Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1304594
Console -- Update Java dependency to 1.8
Last modified: 2016-11-07 10:39:43 EST
Description of problem:
Packages that require minimal Java standard version can add versioned dependencies on one of virtual packages providing Java environment. For example if packages depending on functionality of JDK 8 can require java-headless >= 1:1.8.0.
Epoch in versions of JVM packages
For compatibility with JPackage project packages providing Java 1.6.0 or later use epoch equal to 1. This was necessary because package java-1.5.0-ibm from JPackage project had epoch 1 for some reason, so packages providing other implementations of JVM also had to use non-zero epoch in order to keep version ordering correct.
Requires: java >= 1:1.6.0
BuildRequires: java-devel >= 1:1.6.0
On a fresh RHEL7.3 after redhat-ds was installed:
# rpm -q --whatprovides java
# rpm -q --whatrequires java
Marking as VERIFIED.
