Description

Oi-dev-151a has java jdk 6 installed and this may in violation with oracle, since, oracle retired Operating System Distributor License for Java" (DLJ) license and licensed jdk 6 under oracle's BCL and the jdk now needs to be downloaded directly from oracle. It appears open source projects that wishes to included jdk with the OS, now need to use OpenJDK instead.

The comments on this are nonsensical, but we ship OpenJDK now so this should not affect us.
