Hi,

we are looking to install Software requiring OpenJDK-1.7 on a Suse Linux Enterprise (4SAP) Sp3
Currently i can not find a binary rpm only source rpm which will not build when Firefox31 (which is also required by the software)
Is installed. Suse Support can not tell us if there is a binary or if it is supported at all , call is pending there for 5 days already ;-(
Do we need another license? Is is it supported only on SLED?

I'm afraid that if SUSE Support can't answer your question then anything
you do will be unsupported by them.

As you've found, SLED offers Java Runtime Environment based on OpenJDK 7
(java-1_7_0-openjdk-1.7.0) but SLES has Java 6 Runtime Environment from
IBM (java-1_7_0-ibm-1.7.0).

SLES12 offers both but there isn't yet a SUSE Linux Enterprise for SAP
Applications 12.

What's the software you're trying to install?

HTH.

The JDK (Java Development Kit) is in the SDK (Software Development Kit)
repositories. So you have to add the repos SLE11-SDK-SP3-Pool and -Update.

e.g.
zypper ar -f -t rpm-md SLE11-SDK-SP3-Pool <URL to your SMT-Server or NCC>
SLE11-SDK-SP3-Pool


Then you can search and found:

# zypper se ibm-devel

you will see:
java-1_6_0-ibm-devel and
java-1_7_0-ibm-devel

choose one and install with:

e.g.
zypper in java-1_7_0-ibm-devel
for JDK Version 1.7


Merry Christmas
