Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 230528
openoffice.org depends on "java development", i.e. xerces-j2, xalan-j2

Description of problem:
If you remove java development from the groups view it also uninstalls open office.
Last 3 times I tried it
Steps to Reproduce:
1. uncheck java development under development in groups view
2. click apply
Open office is uninstalled
Java development to be uninstalled and not to remove open office as a dependency
The packages within java development that open office depends on should be moved
to somewhere else within the groups view, possibly java runtime?
Requires: libgcj >= 4.0.0, bsh, hsqldb >= 1.80.1, xalan-j2, xerces-j2
and on autorequires we additionally need libjawt.so
rpm -q --whatprovides libjawt.so
These are all correct requires. Looks like the problem is that xalan-j2 and
xerces-j2 and their dependancies are considered java development. OOo won't work
completely (xslt transform features) if they are removed. Similarly bsh is used
in the scripting environment to go alongside the basic editor to provide a
beanshell scripting UI so there's no bug here on the OOo side.
The problem is that much of java is both runtime _and_ development. The java
guys want these things listed in java development also.
I'll ask them to re-review the java groupings within comps, but this may be an
