OpenJDK binaries for RHEL in tar/zip format

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We have installed OpenJDK using yum, but we don't find the binaries (tar/zip) for OpenJDK for Linux. Does Red Hat ship OpenJDK binaries in tar/zip format ?
  • We need to update a number of VMs to the latest OpenJDK for Java 8. Yum update only provides the 191 build for RHEL 7.X. I'm looking for a tar or gzip package that is portable which will allow us to install java-1.8.0-openJDK- on our 6.x systems.
