Re: [fedora-java] libvirt-java bindings

I have one recent package that does this (specifies openjdk on F9+ and
icedtea on F8) and one that doesn't (just wants java >= 1.5). The
first package uses JNI and needs a Sun-like JVM to work (or at least
it took more autotools hacking than I cared to try to make it work),
and if I just put Requires: java it tended to grab gcj. I guess I
could also put java > 1.5, but the issue isn't the 1.5-ness, it's the
Sun-style JNI classes.

(The packages are pl-jpl and ice-java, respectively, if you're wondering).
