1. Summary:

 

Oracle Java SE packages will be moved from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5

and 6 Supplementary Red Hat Network (RHN) channels to the Oracle Java for

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 RHN channels.

 

2. Description:

 

Oracle Java SE development (JDK) and runtime (JRE) software packages will

be removed from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Supplementary media and RHN

channels. These packages will be relocated to a new set of channels that

are dedicated to delivering Oracle Java software. Customers are advised to

reconfigure their systems to use the new channels to ensure that they are

receiving the latest updates to Oracle Java software.

 

Oracle Java software packages will be removed from Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Supplementary media and RHN channels on May 8, 2014. Oracle Java will be

available for online download via the new RHN channels.

 

This change affects the following packages:

* Oracle Java SE 5 (java-1.5.0-sun)

* Oracle Java SE 6 (java-1.6.0-sun)

* Oracle Java SE 7 (java-1.7.0-oracle)

 

Red Hat Enterprise Linux includes OpenJDK as the default Java development

and runtime environment. Java development and runtime is also available

from IBM via the Supplementary media and RHN channels. Access to OpenJDK

and IBM JDK are not affected by this change.

 

3. Solution:

 

Users are required to enable the new repository on their systems to access

Oracle Java software. Refer to Red Hat Customer Portal Knowledgebase

Solution 732883, linked to in the References section, for instructions on

how to subscribe your systems to the new Oracle Java RHN channels.
