JDK Update From "jdk1.7.0_171" To "jdk1.7.0_181"

(Doc ID 2417318.1)

Last updated on JULY 02, 2018

Applies to:

Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Customer used well known patch to install the latest Java SE 7 (7u181) on their system. A previous update to Java 7, u171, was already installed on the system. Customer expected installation of the latest update to remove the previously installed update. Not only did that not happen but existing RPM commands to list out Java SE packages failed to capture anything about the latest update. Why does this happen.
