#12033 closed enhancement (fixed)

Simplify java alternatives testing

Reported by: sebastic Owned by: bastiK
Priority: normal Milestone: 15.11
Component: Ubuntu package Version:
Keywords: linux Cc: sebastic


The attached patch simplifies the alternatives testing for the java executable.

The JDK versions are tested in order of preference: JDK 8, 7, 9.

When no (non-headless) OpenJDK package is installed, test for the Oracle JDK versions.

Break out of testing loops when a suitable java command is found.

A single list of java commands is used, instead of a list for each version.

The patch updates /usr/bin/java for both tested & latest.
