As previously reported, package "java-common" is now gone in favor of "java-runtime-common" and "java-environment-common".

@users: once this very package is updated, you will be able to build and install it. Please note that a news item was posted ( that provides 3 quick commands to prevent you from getting a "file conflict" error during the next pacman upgrade.

Please see our Java wiki page for info, and forum, IRC, Mailing lists for help.

@maintainer: you will need to:
- change your "java-runtime" providing package dependency from "java-common" to "java-runtime-common"
- add dependency "java-environment-common" to your "java-environment" providing packages

- Links from /usr/bin now belong to one of the mentioned "common" packages (fixes FS#41883)
- Links from /usr/bin point at /usr/lib/jvm/default/bin/* and thus do not use JAVA_HOME nor script /usr/lib/java-common-wrapper (prevents incorrect Java path detection for many build or run scripts). As a side effect, forcing a Java runtime by setting JAVA_HOME is now NOT supported anymore.

This should be all. Please have a look at official OpenJDK packages from extra for reference. "install" scripts for OpenJDK packages have also been revamped for nicer integration but without any consequence on other packages. These could easily be customized (or even taken "as is") for your own "install" scripts.

FYI, current package "java-common" will be split due to

The only changes needed will be:
- for java-runtime-headless providing packages to now depend on "java-runtime-common" rather than "java-common"
- for java-environment providing packages to now depend on "java-environment-common"

These new packages are expected to be pushed to extra next week-end.

please copy the file to /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-oracle

I do not think that (jmc) mission control is included in jdk7. isn't it only in the java 8 package?
And merging with jdk7 will be very good. It is annoying to have jdk for java 8 and jdk7-oracle for java 7.

Well, it wasn't chosen, right?

basinilya commented on 2014-09-10 06:39

That post doesn't tell what convention was chosen. In fact, I hardly understand its manner.

That's fine. My response:
