The Ubuntu Developers Are Discussing On Whether To Drop OpenJDK 7 And Tomcat7 From Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr

Hello Linux Geeksters. The Canonical developers are discussing on whether remove the default support for OpenJDK and Tomcat7 from Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr.

The Ubuntu Developers Are Discussing On Whether To Drop OpenJDK 7 And Tomcat7 From Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr

OpenJDK 7 is quite a resource drain and so, the developers are questioning its utility, as the default Java implementation. As a conscience, they also need to remove Tomcat7 from the programs installed by default, since it cannot be compiled with gcj.

There were also discussions to implement Qt 5.2 and GRUB 2.02 Beta 2 as default on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr.

Personally, I use the SUN Java, so this change does not affect me at all. To install Java 7 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, you have to add the needed ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the oracle-java7-installer package. Like this:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer
