An updated system-switch-java package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The system-switch-java package provides a tool that allows you to select the Java environment from the list of the installed Java alternatives. The tool supports graphical user interface (GUI) and text user interface (TUI) mode.
- When switching to OpenJDK, the system-switch-java utility failed to switch the web plug-in to the IcedTea plug-in. This happened because system-switch-java was looking for the plug-in in a wrong location. With this update, system-switch-java searches for the web plug-in in the correct location (/usr/lib/IcedTeaPlugin.so) and the plug-in is applied when requested.
- On system-switch-java 1.1.5, the command "system-switch-java --version" printed the value "1.1.4". The underlying code has been updated and the command now returns the correct version number.
All users of system-switch-java are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
