[New: openFATE 314729] Include oracle java JRE installer rpm in non-oss repo
Feature added by: Shekhar Neupane (wildnux)

Feature #314729, revision 1
Title: Include oracle java JRE installer rpm in non-oss repo

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Shekhar Neupane (wildnux)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
Many new users find it very hard to install Java JRE in after they install
opensuse distro. Since Oracle does not allow distributions to package java
rpms, it would be great if there was some package in the non-oss repository
that would download the installer from oracle's server and install java
automatically for the user. I have created one project in build service for
such package which would run installation script while installing and
uninstallation script while uninstalling the package:
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show?package=oracle-java7-installer&project=home%3Awildnux

Note: that is just one quick workaround, which can be greatly improved to
provide a better workaround for easier java installation.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: Because oracle does not let distributions to package java
anymore, and new users always have trouble installing it correctly.
