[opensuse-factory] OpenJDK7 is going to Factory
Hallo all,

as you might know, Oracle have announced the end of general support for
jdk6 in November 2012. In order to have maintenable system, we have to
follow and switch to jdk7 as well.

I have just sumbitted the java-1_7_0-openjdk to Java:openjdk6:Factory -
this release is based on icedtea-2.1, openjdk b147 and should be an
equivalent of Oracle Java 7 u2. There are two minor problems preventing
the succesfull submit into Factory

* it has to be rebuilt using java-1_7_0-openjdk
* BuildRequires: -brp-check-suse and BuildRequires:
-post-build-checks are not things Factory checking team would accept

I hope I will fix them this week and submit openjdk7 to Factory soon.

The next step would be rebuild of all java packages with jdk7 and fix
possible problems, but this will be a task for time, when openjdk7 will
be done.

Best regards
Michal Vyskocil
