1. Summary:

Oracle Java SE 6 will no longer receive updates after February 28, 2013.
The java-1.6.0-sun packages on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6
Supplementary media and Supplementary Red Hat Network (RHN) channels are

2. Description:

Oracle Java SE 6 will no longer receive updates after February 28, 2013.
The Oracle Java SE 6 packages on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6
Supplementary media and Red Hat Network (RHN) channels will continue to be
available after February 28, 2013.

Red Hat will continue to provide these packages only as a courtesy to
customers. Red Hat will not provide updates to these packages after this
date.

3. Solution:

Red Hat recommends that customers using Oracle Java SE 6 choose one of the
following alternative Java implementations:

* OpenJDK 6, which is available and supported in Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5 and 6.

* IBM's Java SE 6, which is available on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
and 6 Supplementary media and Supplementary RHN channels through
September 2017.

* OpenJDK 7, which is available and supported in Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5 and 6.

* IBM's Java SE 7, which is available on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
and 6 Supplementary media and Supplementary RHN channels.

* Oracle Java SE 7, which is available today on the Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5 and 6 Supplementary media and Supplementary RHN channels.

In the near future, Red Hat will provide updated packages for these
alternative Java implementations and detailed instructions describing how
to configure a new default Java runtime environment.
