JDK 7 dependency problem with RPM installation of JBoss EAP 6

Solution Verified - Updated -


When trying to install JBoss EAP 6 using RPM the process fails even though java-1.7.0-openjdk is installed already.

   yum groupinstall jboss-eap6

However the same processes success when Java 6 (java-1.6.0-openjdk) packages are installed. Why do we have to use other Java version instead of java-1.7.0-openjdk when install EAP6 using RPMs?
