      Description


      with RHEL3.0 u3 and RHEL4.0, "java -version" (without setting the PATH variable) command returns something similar to :

      [root@jqa-v65x-1 jmx]# java -version
      libgcj-java-placeholder.sh

      This script is a placeholder for the /usr/bin/java
      master link required by jpackage.org conventions. libgcj's
      rmiregistry, rmic and jar tools are now slave symlinks to these
      masters, and are managed by the alternatives(8) system.

      This change was necessary because the rmiregistry, rmic and jar tools
      installed by previous versions of libgcj conflicted with symlinks
      installed by jpackage.org JVM packages.
      gij (GNU libgcj) version 3.4.2 20041017 (Red Hat 3.4.2-6.fc3)

      ===================================================================
      Would it be possible for the rpms to update these symbolic links so that Sun's JVM can be used.
