Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4498) Remove openjdk-6-jre Cassandra APT dependencies
Date Tue, 28 Aug 2012 20:19:08 GMT

Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-4498:
-------------------------------------------

Sounds like there are no really good options, in which case I'd rather stick with the status
quo until openjdk7 makes the problem moot.

> As it is well known the recommended jre for Cassandra is sun java 1.6 but at this point
that package no longer in the debian or ubuntu apt repos. In order to run Cassandra with the
sun java 1.6 jre it must be installed manually with out the repos. Because of this when you
install cassandra via the apache or datastax apt repos it must also install openjdk-6-jre
even though sun java 1.6 jre is already installed.
> I would suggest that the java apt dependencies be removed from the Depends field in package
configuration and move to either the Recommends or Suggests field so that way openjdk is not
being downloaded when not necessary and possibly interfering with a be pre-installed jre
