Red Hat Security Advisory
Synopsis: Low: Oracle Java SE - Notification of Removal from Supplementary Channel
Advisory ID: RHSA-2014:0477-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Supplementary
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0477.html
Issue date: 2014-05-07
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.
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.
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.
