Oracle Linux : Switching Back To Previous Version of openjdk (Doc ID 2056238.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 16, 2015

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 6.0 to Oracle Linux 6.6 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel [3.8.13] [Release OL6 to OL6U6]
Linux x86-64
Linux x86

Goal

How to downgrade the Java version which got installed/updated during system patching. 

The "java" command does not run the JVM that has been installed.  Java applications can fail to run if an unexpected Java Runtime Environment is found.

Recent version is - java-1.8.0-openjdk-1.8.0.51-1.b16.el6_7.x86_64 

Required version is - java-1.7.0-openjdk-1.7.0.85-2.6.1.3.0.1.el6_7.x86_64
