OpenJDK 1.8 Support in CDH 6

avatar
Explorer

Hello

 

The documentation for upgrading/migrating the JDK shows installing Java OpenJDK 1.8 using the package manager and therefore from the OS repositories, which for Redhat/CentOS 7 is:

 

su -c yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel

 

Does this mean that the whichever version (1.8.0.191 at time of writing) and all future versions of OpenJDK 1.8 are supported for Cloudera Manager and CDH 6.x?

 

The above command is taken from the documentation here: https://www.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/upgrade/topics/ug_jdk8.html

 

Thanks,

JG

Thanks for the clarification, the Java requirements page is clear with tested and recommended versions. Would it make sense to include "1.8.0-<update_version>" on the upgrading JDK page?

 

I installed Java OpenJDK 1.8.0 on Redhat/CentOS 7 as follows:

 

su -c yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.181 java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel-1.8.0.181 java-1.8.0-openjdk-headless-1.8.0.181

 

Then I added exclude=java-1.8.0-openjdk* to /etc/yum.conf.

HI,

 

It's not uncommon for our documentaion team to cross-link pages to avoid duplication within our documentation. However with that said I'll pass your feedback along to our documentation team.
