Redhat Network(RHN) updates has
this rpm installed /opt/IBMJava2-131 same place.

IBMJava2-JRE-1.3.1-10 NOT found in 

# ./java -fullversion
 java full version "J2RE 1.3.1 IBM build
When we use IBM DB2 8.1.5 and WebSphere 5.1,
Should we use redhat's IBMJava2-JRE-1.3.1-10 ?
Redhat supports IBM JDK ?
We have 4 choise.
1) Redhat IBMJava2-JRE-1.3.1-10
2) JDK with DB2 installation
3) JDK with WebSphere installation
4) JDK from IBM JDK site
Redhat Enterprise 2.1AS
We suppose to use kernel-smp-2.4.9-e.40
JDK depends on Kernel version ?
Who suports JDK ?
IBM, Redhat or Dell(We use PowerEdge 1750) ?
