[Doc Bug Fix] Unclear prerequisite of JDK6 for RPM installation of EAP-6
Last modified: 2015-07-16 20:40:01 EDT
Description of problem: A listed prerequisite under the RPM installation section is:
"A Java 6 JDK must be installed. If you wish to use a Java 7 JDK, you need to install both versions."
This seems to be based on the issue discussed in this bug:
Namely, Open JDK7 does not provide "java" as an RPM dependency. The Oracle JDK for Java 7, however, does provide "java".
Suggestions for improvement: If the issue is limited to OpenJDK6, the prerequisite should be modified to articulate its applicability.
Based on current info from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1025791#c5, issue isn't fixed yet, so what about to close this BZ as duplication and track issue only in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1025791 if reporter agree?
I have no issues consolidating, and for the most part I think https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1025791 covers the issues. The only thing I would like to see clarified in that bug is that the issue seems limited to OpenJDK. Customers using Oracle JDK and reading the 6.2 installation guide will still see the warning: "A Java 6 JDK is required, even if you wish to use a Java 7 JDK". If that does not apply to Oracle users I would like to see that articulated in whichever bug we ultimately track this issue with.
