This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as errata RHEA-2009:1208
Updated java-1.5.0-ibm packages that comprise IBM's Java 1.5.0 SR10 release are now available.
The following packages comprise IBM's 1.5.0 SR10 Java release:
java-1.5.0-ibm java-1.5.0-ibm-demo java-1.5.0-ibm-devel java-1.5.0-ibm-javacomm java-1.5.0-ibm-jdbc java-1.5.0-ibm-plugin java-1.5.0-ibm-src
These packages include the IBM Java 5 Runtime Environment and the IBM Java 5 Software Development Kit.
The Java 5 Runtime Environment (JRE) consists of the Java virtual machine, the Java platform core classes and supporting files, and includes a Web browser plug-in for running Java applets. It is the runtime section of the Java 5 SDK, but without the development tools such as compilers and debuggers.
The Java 5 Software Development Kit (SDK) is a development environment for building applications, applets, and components that can be deployed on the Java platform. The Java 5 SDK software includes tools useful for developing and testing programs written in the Java programming language. The Java 5 SDK software also includes a JDBC/ODBC bridge for Java applications that need to communicate with a database.
These updated packages comprise the IBM Java 5 SR10 release.
Users of java-1.4.2-ibm may install these new 1.5.0 packages in parallel and switch between the new and old Java environments using the alternatives tool.
