Description Thomas Fitzsimmons 2005-05-05 17:57:24 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050328 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-3

Description of problem:
In RHEL3, no further updates will be done to the following packages, and they have been deprecated in favor of the java-1.4.2-ibm packages:

IBMJava2-SDK-1.4.1-9
IBMJava2-JRE-1.4.1-8
IBMJava2-SDK-1.3.1-9
IBMJava2-JRE-1.3.1-9

The presense of two SDK packages (IBMJava2-SDK and java-1.4.2-ibm) causes some confusion.  I'm not sure if it would cause less or more confusion if the old IBMJava2 packages were removed from RHN, but removing them may be a good idea.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
IBMJava2-SDK-1.4.1-9

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. look at RHEL3 package list

Actual Results:  Two sets of IBM SDK packages.

Expected Results:  One set of IBM SDK packages.
