Description Muayyad Alsadi 2008-10-06 19:37:45 EDT
Description of problem:
I believe we should not force our users to use openjdk,
we should give them the freedom to choose between openjdk and sun's jdk or any other jdk

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
rpm -qp -R netbeans-java2-6.1-6.fc10.noarch.rpm
Actual results:
java >= 1:1.6.0
java-1.6.0-openjdk >= 1:1.6.0

Expected results:
java >= 1:1.6.0
Comment 1 Victor G. Vasilyev 2008-10-07 11:42:36 EDT
Hi Muayyad,

I absolutely agree that the netbeans-java2-6.1 package should not explicitly depend on the java-1.6.0-openjdk package. 
But, it was my wrong attempt to establish dependency on JDK (not JRE!).

There is related Bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=464558 . 

Both bugs (this and #464558) are fixed by means of replacing the dependency on java-1.6.0-openjdk with java-sdk.

In result:

$ rpm -qp -R netbeans-java2-6.1-7.fc10.noarch.rpm
java >= 1:1.6.0
java-sdk >= 1:1.6.0

Note, the netbeans-java2 subpackage requires both java and java-sdk, because it doesn't make any assumptions about possible packaging of both JRE and JDK and relations between their packages. E.g. such solution will work properly even if both java and java-sdk will be provided by one package. 

Successful koji build:

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

thanks, it worked for me
sorry for being late

I changed the status to closed currentrelease
is this correct ?
Comment 4 Victor G. Vasilyev 2009-01-13 06:55:07 EST
Thanks, Muayyad. I think the status is correct, because FC9 is actually the current release now.
Comment 5 Victor G. Vasilyev 2009-01-13 06:58:18 EST
Sorry I've typo. I meant FC10 is the current release.
