Another Oracle Java question - Java Platform 8

Jump to solution

Has anyone come across this - 

I found that there is a lot of evidence whereby the Assigned application and the eventual Recognized application are different.


For example: 

  1. The Assigned application is showing to Java Runtime Environment 8 Standard, but the Recognized application is  Java Platform 8 Standard.

Digging down to the Installer Evidence, it shows up as  RPM, version 1.8.0_xxx-fcs – Raw name: jre1.8

 

2. Another Example is the Assigned application is showing up as Java Development Kit 8 Standard , but the Recognized application is Java Platform 8 Standard.

Again, the Installer Evidence is RPM, version 1.8.0_xxx-fcs

Raw name: jre1.8, jdk1.8

The Assigned Application and Recognized Application can be different when application suite evidence is used to "roll up" one or more applications that have found to be installed into a higher level "suite" application that ultimately is what gets recognized.

For example, installations of Java Runtime Environment 8 Standard and optionally Java Development Kit 8 Standard will get rolled up to be recognized as an installation of Java Platform 8 Standard based on the following rules from the ARL:
