Last Version of Fedora Workstation to Use Java7 or OpenJDK7

Wondering if anyone knows the last version of Fedora Workstation to use Java 7 or OpenJDK7.

I went all the way down to 27 and this is where DNF can’t find any mirrors anymore, i.e. even if you find the fitting version it’s doubtful you’re going to be able to install it since the mirrors are gone.

z% dnf search "openjdk" --releasever=27

Looks like Fedora 20 from my testing.


Why does it need to be Fedora? CentOS-7 has java-1.7 and will continue to be supported for another 18 months with security updates and bugfixes. Anything that works on Fedora 20 you should be able to get working on CentOS-7 as well, perhaps with a little bit of work.

for java 7 and openjdk7

  • Targeted release: Fedora 17
  • Last Updated: 2012-03-15
  • Percentage of completion: 100%

is the last entry i can find for it being officially supported/updated.

I was talking about the repo once you installed from the ISO since I doubt OpenJDK comes preinstalled.
