Description Frank Crawford 2011-08-21 10:40:49 UTC
Description of problem:
/etc/init.d/hsqldb start or systemctl equivalent fails to start due to an invalid symlink

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install hsqldb package
2. Run /etc/init.d/hsqldb start
Actual results:
The message
JAVA_EXECUTABLE or HSQLDB_JAR_PATH in '/etc/sysconfig/hsqldb' is set to a non-file.

is printed and daemon is not started

Expected results:
Start the daemon.

Additional info:
The issue is that the installed symlink for /var/lib/hsqldb/lib/hsqldb.jar references itself.  Possibly this should link to /usr/share/java/hsqldb.jar.
