    we ran into, the rpms do not seem to require java >= 7.
    (btw, thanks for providing the repos!)

    the rpms require ‘java-devel >= 1:1.7.0’, but openjdk 1.7 or 1.8 -devel rpms do no longer provide this.
    on centos6, eg openjdk1.7.0-devel provides java7-devel, and openjdk-1.8.0-devel is even worse (doesn’t provide anything that could be used for this). this could be a packaging issue on centos side, i have no immediate access to RHEL to check.

    Hi Ding-Yi, thanks for the packages!! I’m having the same trouble as stdweird; I’m trying to install the new el6 Maven package alongside JDK 1.7.0, and it requires the capability `java-devel >= 1:1.7.0`, but this capability is not used by 1.7.0+. Instead, it looks like the 1.7.0 jdk-devel package has the capability `java7-devel = 1:1.7.0`.

    3.3.3-3 is ready now.

    i’m totally confused by the centos rpms from openjdk. this is on centos6
    $ repoquery –whatprovides ‘java-devel >= 1.7.0’
    so no 1.7.0 or 1.8.0

    and i can now install the `apache-maven-3.3.3-3` on el6 with only openjdk 1.6.0 installed, which ofcourse doesn’t work.

    (on centos7, the 3.3.3-3 is installable and usable, yum install pulls in both openjdk 1.7.0 and 1.8.0)
