Subject RE: Why is yum pulling in open JDK ?
Date Mon, 07 Jul 2014 10:24:24 GMT
I have had the same issue. Not an expert on this… but I think it is more a consequence of
the CentOS repo than cassandra rpm. The Oracle JVM packages are not available and it appears
you need to download (after accepting license) the rpm and use the rpm command to install
the package. Wget is also problematic as the url appears to be littered with other html in
the response… I had to download and scp to the box and then install Java BEFORE installing
Casandra to avoid the dependency triggering an auto install of the openjdk.

Any repo experts please jump in…

I am very aware that Cassandra needs Java. I was just wondering why 'openjdk' is the dependency
while it is advised to use the Oracle Java.

Java is a dependency of Cassandra, so if you do not have Java already installed on your computer,
yum will automatically do so. The Oracle Java JVM must be installed separately.

The first installation target is for Datastax Community version 2.0, while the latter installs
Apache Cassandra 2.0
