Fedora 8 To Integrate OpenJDK

Oracle

One of the most recently added features to the Fedora 8 feature list is IcedTea, which is the open-source version of Java (OpenJDK). The plan is to make IcedTea the default JPackage environment and will replace GCJ. There are Fedora packages for IcedTea already maintained (at ClassPath.org) and the dependencies needed to build IcedTea can already be found in Fedora Rawhide. What's left to be accomplished is resolving issues pertaining to questionable license headers, while lower on the totem pole is integration with the open-source Java web-plugin (gcjwebplugin) followed by PPC and PPC64 support. If IcedTea doesn't make the cut for Fedora 8, GCJ will be left in as the default JPackage environment. More information on the OpenJDK plans for Fedora 8 can be found in the Fedora Project Wiki.
