1. Topic:

Updated IBM Java 2 1.3.1 runtime and SDK packages are now available which
fix various issues.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 2.1 - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 2.1 - i386

3. Problem description:

The IBM Developer Kit for Linux, Java 2 Technology Edition, contains the
developer kit and runtime environment for building, deploying, and running
Java 2 applications and applets.

IBM Java 1.3.1 SR2 has severe regressions in Java Virtual Machine (JVM)
functionality including memory leaks, issues which necessitate restarting
the JVM every few hours, and performance issues.

Users are advised to upgrade to these errata packages containing IBM Java
1.3.1 SR5 which correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains
the desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. RPMs required:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (Advanced Server) version 2.1:


Available from Red Hat Network: IBMJava2-JRE-1.3.1-8.i386.rpm
Available from Red Hat Network: IBMJava2-SDK-1.3.1-8.i386.rpm

6. Verification:

MD5 sum                          Package Name

These packages are GPG signed by Red Hat for security.  Our key is
available from https://www.redhat.com/security/keys.html

You can verify each package with the following command:
    rpm --checksig -v <filename>

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:
    md5sum <filename>
