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?

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

That's fine. My response:

So just relaying the same thing here: because the path for OpenJDK 8 was chosen as '/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk' (java-<major version>-<project name>), I simply preferred making mine 'java-8-jdk' (not 'java-8-oracle'), because the actual name of the project is 'JDK', not 'Oracle JDK', and it also creates consistency with the man pages:

$ man java-openjdk8
$ man java-jdk8

Instead of:

$ man java-openjdk8
$ man java8-oracle

Which also made me change the following dependencies:

- java-runtime-headless-oracle
- java-runtime-oracle
- java-web-start-oracle
- java-environment-oracle


- java-runtime-headless-jre
- java-runtime-jre
- java-web-start-jre
- java-environment-jdk (a JDK component)

Even if all of those end up being '-jdk' for "simplicity", I'd still prefer that setup, than the whole excessive "Oracle" tagging. The 'java8-oracle' (jre8-oracle/jdk8-oracle) package was already replaced with my implementation, so I assume the devs think it's fine as long as it works and doesn't conflict.

However, you're part of the whole Java scheme in Arch also, so I'd like your input on this as well so we can reach a consensus on the standard.
