You can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs.

That said, I am quite certain that lacking the information about basic
Fedora packaging, the various packages that depend upon Java, how java
is supposed to work, what Java actually is and how it is used, what the
various versions of Java represent, where things are traditionally
installed, environmental variables that the various Java implementations
might require, what the intent of the free-java is, what reasonable
tests would be in establishing whether you have a properly functioning
java, in essence, lacking all predicate information of what is to be
accomplished and why, that your efforts would lack credibility and have
no relevance for anyone except you.

Just sayin...but recognizing that the lack of predicate understanding
doesn't seem to ever stop you from overreaching.
