Re: Installing Java

Each ptf  of JAVA is a full replacement. You only need the "last" PTF.
Next time you order maintenance or code, specify "eliminate supersedes" when 
placing you order.

BTW, this means any modifications to the java source provided will need to be 
reinstalled each time JAVA is updated.

Hi,
When I ordered z/OS v2.4, I only ordered the 64 bit version of Java.
When we tried to start PFA, it failed. A quick search showed that PFA requires 
the 31 bit version of java.
I ordered it using shopzseries.
The resulting package was over 13GB.
It looks like I have the base version and over 50 PTF's that upgrade it to the 
current version.

Can I prevent SMP/E from installing all of those versions, and just install the 
final fix?
From past experience I know that each PTF is a full replacement of the who java 
SDK.

If the Java service is packaged correctly then SMP will only install the most 
recent PTF that you request. However, it will also install the FUNCTION.  That 
will not cause duplicate elements.

Hi Gadi AMV"SH,
If later PTFs are truly replacements, the hierarchy of PTFs should be 
that every new PTF should SUPersede any old one.

This means that only the last one actually gets installed.

Regards,
David

hi Gadi,


Perhaps the hold data will allow the APPLY job to figure out that only the 
latest ones in the chain actually need to be applied.
Ones in the chain may be superseded, so it's always worth an APPLY CHECK to see 
what's going on.

When downloading, the packaging system may be blindly pulling together related 
fixes, but I'm hoping the SMPHOLD will make the actual apply make sense.
