Default So, just wondering, is OpenJDK7 in CentOS 6.3??

http://www.redhat.com/about/news/archive/2012/6/red-hat-enterprise-linux-63-globally-available

"Developer Tools: In addition to OpenJDK6 support in Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6, the newly introduced OpenJDK7 allows customers
running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 to develop and test with the
latest version of open source Java. "

Yet in the CentOS 6.3 release notes, the only mention about "OpenJDK"
is for OpenJDK 6...

http://wiki.centos.org/Manuals/ReleaseNotes/CentOS6.3

"7.4. Packages released as 6.2 updates with older packages on the 6.3
install media

apr-1.3.9-5.el6_2
apr-devel-1.3.9-5.el6_2
java-1.6.0-openjdk-src-1.6.0.0-1.48.1.11.3.el6_2
java-1.6.0-openjdk-demo-1.6.0.0-1.48.1.11.3.el6_2
java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel-1.6.0.0-1.48.1.11.3.el6_2
java-1.6.0-openjdk-javadoc-1.6.0.0-1.48.1.11.3.el6_2
java-1.6.0-openjdk-1.6.0.0-1.48.1.11.3.el6_2 "

Is this because OpenJDK7 is not included, or because it is included
but not worth mentioning in the rel notes?. (No intention to offend
anyone, just thinking aloud).

I am downloading CentOS 6.3 as I write this, so I'll soon find out...
yet I wanted to ask anyhow (because perhaps the addition of OpenJDK7
-if present- could be added to the wiki?).

Regards,
FC

Neither ...

Those files listed are ... (1) rpms that we built for 6.2 updates ...
THAT ARE ALSO ... (2) newer than we put on the 6.3 ISO.

That is a very specific set of files and what it means is that the
java-1.6.0-openjdk files on the 6.3 iso are older than the files you
would have on a fully updated 6.2 machine.

And yes, java-1.7.0-openjdk was in 6.2 and it is in 6.3 ... but the rpms
we built for 6.3 are newer than the rpms in 6.2-updates.

We put the older files on our 6.3 ISOs (the ones listed where you
quoted) because we are mirroring the versions in the upstream EL
release, which are also older than the 6.2-updates. We did, however,
move the newer rpms into 6.3-updates, so you will get them as updates to
the 6.3 install.

I guess those are very valid reasons. The explanation was a little
convoluted and my lack of sleep prevented me from actually
understanding most of it, yet I managed to decipher the last
paragraph... so if I install CentOS 3.6 Ill get OpenJDK7 as part of
the system updates.... but the files are actually not in the install
CD? did I get that right?.
:-)

Sorry but Im on low battery mode after near 20 hrs wo sleep... In any
case, Ill re-read your answer after a good nights (or days) rest
and Ill surely understand it all.

Thanks

Do a "yum search openjdk" and you'll see that java-1.6.0-* and
java-1.7.0-* packages co-exist. I don't think you'll get the 1.7
versions in an update - you'd have to tell yum to install them
explicitly.
