Novell JDK - Oracle Or Not ?
We are auditing all our versions of Java we have installed on any server. Our 2 iManager show up as having Novell JDK installed :
We would like to know if this is Novell's own version or is this related to Oracle's version.
Re: Novell JDK - Oracle Or Not ?
AFIAK it's a repackages Oracle JDK. To be sure, just look what's inside the rpm:
# rpm -qa | grep novell-jdk novell-jdk-1.8.0_131-1 # rpm -ql novell-jdk | grep jre/bin/java /opt/novell/jdk1.8.0_131/jre/bin/java /opt/novell/jdk1.8.0_131/jre/bin/javaws # /opt/novell/jdk1.8.0_131/jre/bin/java -version java version "1.8.0_131" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_131-b11) Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 25.131-b11, mixed mode)
Note: Since Micro Focus is switching to OpenJDK in general, the contents of that rpm may change in newer versions as well. E.g. IDM 4.7 installs:
# rpm -qf /opt/novell/eDirectory/lib64/nds-modules/jre/bin/java netiq-jrex-1.8.0-212.x86_64 # /opt/novell/eDirectory/lib64/nds-modules/jre/bin/java -version openjdk version "1.8.0_212" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (Zulu 220.127.116.11-CA-linux64) (build 1.8.0_212-b04) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (Zulu 18.104.22.168-CA-linux64) (build 25.212-b04, mixed mode)
