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.
