Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 999762
Last modified: 2015-07-20 22:20:37 EDT
Description of problem: Parts of Java FAQ may need some updates.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):19
Steps to Reproduce:
1. JPackage does not seem updated since 2009
2. Intelllij complains that non-sun version has performance problems during install and recommends against use of OpenJDK.
3. It might be helpful to provide some assistance in docs to allow easy integration of Oracle Java using system-switch-java.
The FAQ does not mention switch-java as an option.
Thanks for brining this up, the Wiki open for anyone with a FAS id to edit. Feel free to login and make changes as you see necessary.
The wiki was fixed in 2014, but I looked it over and saw that it is still current, and replaced yum with dnf to bring it up to date. Current openjdk i 1.8 and the wiki specifying 1.? to install the latest openjdk works great.
