Description Jim Tyrrell 2011-11-14 11:44:59 EST
Description of problem:
sudo yum search jdk 
java-1.6.0-openjdk.i386 : OpenJDK Runtime Environment
java-1.6.0-openjdk-demo.i386 : OpenJDK Demos
java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel.i386 : OpenJDK Development Environment
java-1.6.0-openjdk-javadoc.i386 : OpenJDK API Documentation
java-1.6.0-openjdk-src.i386 : OpenJDK Source Bundle
java-1.6.0-sun-demo.i586 : Demonstration files for Sun JDK
java-1.6.0-sun-devel.i586 : Sun Java Development Kit
java-1.6.0-sun-src.i586 : Source files for Sun JDK

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

How reproducible:
sudo yum search jdk 

Steps to Reproduce:
sudo yum search jdk 
Actual results:
These items if the descriptions are right, are not labeled well

Expected results:
java-1.6.0-openjdk.i386 -> should really be java-1.6.0-openjdk-jre.i386
java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel.i386 - >java-1.6.0-openjdk-jdk.i386

JDK and JRE are the words Sun has used around these for 10 years, using anything else is very confusing.  In a perfect world the JDK is the first one shown in the list as most Linux users, would want/need the full JDK.
