Hi, I'm current running Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 (Tikanga). when I type "java -version" it doesn't really tell me if i'm running build 17 or not. when I run this "yum install java" it tells me this:

Package 1:java-1.6.0-openjdk- already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

Does it mean that I'm running build 17??? Thank you

    The short answer to this question would be 'No'.

    No, you are not running build 17, but 09.

    But also yes, you are running Java 6 update 17, build 09.

    And yes, that is the latest release.
