      Description

      It could be quite useful to have bigtop-utils java detection code discriminate between major version of JDK so that an environment variable could help prioritize between Java7 and Java6.

      I propose we introduce BIGTOP_JAVA_MAJOR environment variable that could then be set to either 7 or 6.

        +1 - I quite like having the list segregated by category anyway!

        Just one thought: We've not defined the BOM for 0.8, which may or may not support IBM Java as well. We should try to include its detection as well. It is packaged much like openJDK, so its well behaved in the packaging sense using alternatives and setting the correct symlinks to /usr/java/default
