OpenJDK6 – Java 1.6.x on CentOS 5.x

Just a quick tip that might help out the folks needing something better than gcj and still using an open version of Java.

On CentOS 5.2 :

rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-2.noarch.rpm

yum install -y java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel java-1.6.0-openjdk

😉

Hope that makes someone’s life easier!
