Java Package Recommendations

Fedora Core Whatever users are advised not to use the Java RPM
provided by Sun. It contains Provides that conflict with names used in
packages provided as part of Fedora Core Whatever. Because of this,
Sun Java might disappear from an installed system during package
upgrade operations.

Fedora Core Whatever users should use either the RPM from jpackage.org
or manually install the Sun Java tarball into /opt. Sun Java 1.5+ is
recommended for stability purposes.
