I always need to perform this command when starting specific app via WEB:
sudo chown -R :wheel /etc/java*

I stand corrected. And I know the previous ABI is still supported, but in the future this package should indeed correct the issue, not Oracle.

You seem a little confused when you say that. I somehow missed that before, but these binaries are provided for whatever dependencies Oracle themselves chooses, that is, the ones in the widest circulation (used by Ubuntu).

So, if you're to rebuild your product for every new major dependency release, you're essentially dropping support for any distribution that uses the old version. Unlike things like libpng and libjpeg, GCC actually still provides the previous ABI (as per the announcment), and even if they were to drop it, it would be up to an AUR package to provide it for our distribution.

According to the script in [1] the binaries should be recompiled. However, this package relies on precompiled binaries. Should this be escalated to Oracle or …?

It wouldn't take much effort to add the sources, etc., but I'm not interested in introducing any complicated ARM-specific hacks in the build.

E: There's also a separate package:

Is there possible to add support for ARM architecture (a.k.a ArchARM).
Oracle provides JDK that runs on armv6h, armv7h and armv8h.

Our own OpenJDK already includes this, so why not ('local_policy.jar' and 'US_export_policy.jar' in /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk/jre/lib/security/). It's apparently not included in Oracle JDK for legal reasons:

Could you consider adding the unlimited crypto strength policies ( to this package? They provide access to important ciphers like 256-bit AES and are required for some applications. I dare say that upstream is just plain wrong still shipping this separately in 2015, and this would be the responsible thing to do.

You can, because the description "Oracle Java Development Kit" mentions it:

I've been meaning to ask this, seeing how you typo some words, do you have a dyslexia?

As you say "for the search function" as I thing that a java package need jave java as one of they keywords, if someone search for java using only keywords then will sure be apreciated the corect tagging, those arent anymore groups, they are keyword and therefor are key for search word and so need to be correctly seted.
