rhino.jar in java.ext.dirs makes programs using rhino 1.7 fail
Last modified: 2010-07-27 13:13:24 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a project that bundles Rhino 1.7, which fails to start in F10 because of the symlink /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk-188.8.131.52.x86_64/jre/lib/rhino.jar. The easiest way to reproduce the problem is to try to start the Rhino 1.7 shell using "java -jar js.jar".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download Rhino 1.7 (js.jar in ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/js/rhino1_7R1.zip)
2. java -jar js.jar
Rhino 1.6 release 0.1.r5.1.3.fc10 2008 07 10
Rhino 1.7 release 1 2008 03 06
This is upstream bug: http://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=179
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
There isn't a plan currently to fix it (well, there is a plan, there is just nobody that is planning to do the work), but it is a real bug that is still an issue. See also the upstream report: http://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=179
