I'm using Java7 because it is in the official repos:

extra/jre7-openjdk 7.u65_2.5.1-3 [installed]
OpenJDK Java 7 full runtime environment

That would seem to make it a logical default. However, it's your package so it's your choice. Perhaps waiting to see what the UMS developers themselves do would be prudent - it IS easy enough to edit the PKGBUILD..

However if you say me that JAVA 7 is better as default choise I have no problem to use it. If there are not significant changes in perfomance we can use JAVA 6 too, in this way the pkg will be compatible with also more systems ;)
To say the truth when I saw the new release I thought about to create 3 different pkgs but then I realized that we really don't know if the authors will build them every release from now on, so I decided to wait for next releases to confirm or less their future intentions xD

"jre" is the official Java Runtime Environment package. It's in AUR and not in official Arch repos (I think because it is not fully opensource since it belongs to Oracle). Its version currently is "8u11-1" ;)

Excuse my lack of being able to find it, but, where is Java 8 in either the main repos or AUR? Defaulting to 8 leaves UMS unable to launch on my system where I have 7 installed. It is trivial to change the version, as you said and I did, but would defaulting to 7 be better for this package?

v4.0.2 has been released in three different builds for Java 6, 7 and 8. This package simply use the latest one (for Java 8) but if you need Java 6 or Java 7 version just edit the PKGBUILD changing the "_javaver" var to the Java version you want (the sha1sums are already present for all the builds) ;)

Updated (downgraded?) to the latest v3.6.3 as requested.
To avoid to go back and forth with the versions, from now on only the full versions will be added. In other words no more alpha, beta, etc... here in future.

Updated to v3.6.2 (again)

Red_Squirrel commented on 2014-05-25 18:39

Restored to v3.6.1.

Red_Squirrel commented on 2014-05-25 18:35

Mmm authors deleted the 3.6.2 version from their website, who knows why :/
