Java DB pkgs and rpm are to be removed from the JDK installers.  

JavaDB can already be found in the db directory under the JDK installation where it is always installed.
Re-opening: two of the bundles were missed as part of this exercise and still include the old SUNWjavadb* packages, e.g.


% Find SUNWjavadb


EVALUATION building with fix from JDK 8

EVALUATION not specific to IPS

SUGGESTED FIX I verified that IPS is procesing the Java DB files as expected. From Dag, Wanvik did a quick status check, results were as expected: In all cases the bundles had Java DB in the db directory. The build containing the push we did yesterday of will hopefully appear soon. /hudsonws/jdk7/bundles/linux-i586/b142-2011-05-10_241/jdk-7-ea-linux-i586.rpm - OK, only db + demo/db directories as expected /hudsonws/jdk7/bundles/solaris-i586/b142-2011-05-10_241/jdk-7-ea-solaris-i586.tar.Z - not yet OK, has both db directory from SUNWj7dev + demo/db from SUNWj7dmo (correct), as well as separate SUNWjavadb-* packages (should go away) /hudsonws/jdk7/bundles/windows-i586/b142-2011-05-10_241/jdk-7-ea-windows-i586.exe - OK, <jdk>/db subdirectory present. I could not see an extra Sun/JavaDB directory being installed any longer. Optional demo install seen. PS! An "anomaly" I noticed: the installer asked for the directory to use for *JRE*, but not for the JDK. Both appeared in Program Files, though, the JRE twice, once inside the JDK and once under Program Files. I suppose this is as it should be(?).

EVALUATION The JavaDB team provides files to RE that contain JavaDB implementation. These files are put into the SUNW SVR4 java packages, not the javadb SVR4 packages. The IPS build process treats the Java DB files as any other artifact and places the files in the correct locations based on the package they are in, jdk or demos and samples.

EVALUATION There are three packaging formats with Java DB files in various locations. SVR4 for 6 and 7 no action on 6 IPS JDK6 and IPD JDK7 Linux RPM In order to have Java DB install as a sample/demo and not be part of otheer installs the following is required SVR4 JDK 6 ( will be left as is ) SVR4 JDK 7 work already done in B140 IPS JDK7 No work if B140 work is complete IPS JDk6 not clear on support requirement RPM Linux RPM pacakges need to be restructured - task not started and not scheduled for 7 GA.
