14.2. Fedora and the JPackage Java Packages

Fedora Core includes many packages derived from the JPackage Project, which provides a Java software repository. These packages have been modified in Fedora to remove proprietary software dependencies and to make use of GCJ's ahead-of-time compilation feature. Fedora users should use the Fedora repositories for updates to these packages, and may use the JPackage repository for packages not provided by Fedora.
Refer to the JPackage website at for more information on the project and the software that it provides.

Mixing Packages from Fedora and JPackage

Research package compatibility before you install software from both the Fedora and JPackage repositories on the same system. Incompatible packages may cause complex issues.
