    Default Installing Oracle Java to run SAP gui Java 7.30 in openSUSE 12.3 64 bit

    Hi, I need to install the latest oracle java (Version 7 Update 21) to evaluate the use of openSUSE 12.3 64 bit for some SAP users, I have found a lot of guides for doing it but all are differents, not entering in details about the location of those guides, my question is, what is the most easy, working and straightforward way to install Oracle Java to be able to run SAP GUI for Java 7.30 on openSUSE 12.3 64 bit?

    thanks

    It shouldn't matter for SAP, but the simplest and most straightforward
    way is to go to java.com and download the official package (Oracle
    doesn't allow anyone to redistribute it anymore IIRC) and install it
    using Oracle's instructions.

    They come in two flavours: tgz and rpm. The rpm is preferable, IMHO,
    because upgrading is easier.

    Probably you also need to install any one of the openSUSE distributed
    java versions (non oracle), because otherwise Yast will believe there is
    no java if you install an application that has java as a dependency -
    like libreoffice, for instance.

    Then there are some tricks to do with update-alternatives to set the
    oracle java as the default one. I have this in my old notes:

    Code:
    
    > # update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/java" "java" "/usr/java/default/bin/java" 1
    > # update-alternatives --set java /usr/java/default/bin/java
    >
    > # update-alternatives --list java
    > /usr/lib64/jvm/jre-1.5.0-gcj/bin/java
    > /usr/java/default/bin/java
    There is also a bug in the oracle supplied /etc/init.d/jexec script:

    Code:
    has:
    
    ### BEGIN INIT INFO
    # Provides: binfmt_misc
    # Required-Start: $local_fs
    # Default-Start: 1 2 3 4 5
    # Default-Start: 0 6
    # chkconfig: 12345 95 05
    # Description: Supports the direct execution of binary formats.
    ### END INIT INFO
    #
    
    should:
    
    #CER: Required-Stop and Default-Stop were missing.
    #
    ### BEGIN INIT INFO
    # Provides: binfmt_misc
    # Required-Start: $local_fs
    # Required-Stop:
    # Default-Start: 1 2 3 4 5
    # Default-Stop: 0 6
    # chkconfig: 12345 95 05
    # Description: Supports the direct execution of binary formats.
    ### END INIT INFO
    #

    But I have not tried this in 12.3 yet.

    I seem to recall the RPM was wrapped in a .bin wrapper.

    But good tips.

    @op - did you try opnJDk first. It is a mature product now and it is easy to get updates for it through the repos.

    Yes, for version 6. Version 7 is an rpm directly.

    I guess it says something about openJDK that my last experience with
    Oracle's java is version 6.

    I know.

    Oracle stopped upgrading version 6 in March, IIRC, so I was forced to go
    to version 7. I need to use Oracle version if I want support with
    problems with some java apps I need... not my personal choice.

    This may change with time... who knows.

    I followed this guide

    https://sites.google.com/site/easyli...a-for-opensuse

    checked in the java site and it reports the right version, also in firefox aboutlugins but if I run the command

    java -version

    I get this

    linux-3uso:~ # java -version
    java version "1.7.0_15"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea7 2.3.7) (suse-8.3.1-x86_64)
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)
    linux-3uso:~ #
    It reports the OpenJDK not the Oracle Java which is Version 7 Update 21


    thanks
