Java RPMs Should Allow for Side-by-Side Installation of JDK and JRE 32 and 64 bit with Only One Update for Each Major Version
(Doc ID 2338304.1)
Last updated on JUNE 02, 2021
Applies to:Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 8 to 8
Information in this document applies to any platform.
There is a property in RPM packages that determines whether, when a patch is applied, the patch overwrites an existing package or whether it installs side-by-side. Before Java SE 8, all Java RPM packages were called Java SE.
If the latest JDK 8 64-bit is installed by RPM, it would overwrite JDK 8u101 64 bit (previous 8u 64-bit install) but leave the other ones alone.
