Description Tom Kincaid 2006-01-03 19:44:55 UTC
Description of problem:

The version of the jrockit  packages in the RHEL 4 U3 Beta, do not change the
default java version when installed. 

This is a regression from the previous set of packages. Please see the console
session below. With the previously shipped packages, the /usr/bin/java linked
was changed to point to the appropriate locally installed jvm.

The packages that are part of the U3 2006:009 Errata do not do this. Instead
the /usr/bin/java link continues to point to gcj.

I think we should try to fix this. It is an obvious regression.

I'm investigating this.


Comment 2 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2006-01-09 17:45:26 UTC
Do you still have your test environment around?  If so can you post the output of:

/usr/sbin/alternatives --display java

and

/usr/sbin/alternatives --display javac

I think the problem is that the BEA RPMs have an alternatives priority of 1420
when they should have a priority of 1428.  This is a bug in the SRPM that BEA
sent me; I'll fix this, rebuild the packages and let BEA know about the priority
field.


Comment 3 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2006-01-09 18:01:08 UTC
The new packages are in beehive:

1.4.2.08-1jpp_41rh in dist-3.0E-lacd-errata-candidate
1.4.2.08-1jpp_42rh in dist-4E-lacd-errata-candidate
