Installing Java 7 JDK on CentOS 7

Openjdk packages on CentOS 7 come in a JRE and a JDK (as you’d expect). If you install java-1.7.0-openjdk you get just the JRE:

$ sudo yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk

$ java -version

java version "1.7.0_151"

OpenJDK Runtime Environment (rhel-2.6.11.1.el7_4-x86_64 u151-b00)

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.151-b00, mixed mode)

Starting up WLS 10.3.6:

wlserver_10.3]$ cd server/

$ cd bin

$ . ./setWLSEnv.sh

The JDK wasn’t found in directory /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-1.7.0.151-2.6.11.1.el7_4.x86_64.

Please edit the startWebLogic.sh script so that the JAVA_HOME

variable points to the location of your JDK.

$ cd /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-1.7.0.151-2.6.11.1.el7_4.x86_64

$ ls

ASSEMBLY_EXCEPTION  jre  jre-abrt  LICENSE  THIRD_PARTY_README

Only a JRE there, no JDK.

From here, install the devel package too:

sudo yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk-devel

Now we look good:

$ . ./setWLSEnv.sh

Your environment has been set.

Good to go!
