Subject [jira] [Created] (DAEMON-224) Add /etc/alternatives/jre to the list of JAVA_HOME suggestions on Linux
Date Thu, 27 Oct 2011 17:22:33 GMT
Add /etc/alternatives/jre to the list of JAVA_HOME suggestions on Linux

                 Key: DAEMON-224
             Project: Commons Daemon
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Jsvc
    Affects Versions: 1.0.7
         Environment: Linux
            Reporter: Archie Cobbs
            Priority: Minor

On some flavors of Linux (e.g., openSUSE), the {{update-alternatives}} system is used to configure
which JVM to use.

On these systems, {{$JAVA_HOME}} can always be set to {{/etc/alternatives/jre}}.

The following simple patch would add this to the list of places to look:
