      Description

      DSpace tries to be helpful and print the Java JDK vendor in the control panel, but gets it utterly wrong and is ultimately misleading for purposes of support, working with vendors etc. For example, from DSpace 3.1:

      Java Runtime Environment Vendor: Oracle Corporation

      But Java is actually OpenJDK:

      [aorth@noma: ~/src/git/DSpace]$ java -version
      Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on
      java version "1.7.0_40"
      OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.4.1) (ArchLinux build 7.u40_2.4.1-2-x86_64)
      OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.0-b50, mixed mode)

      A more helpful indicator of the JDK in use would be the java.vm.name or java.runtime.name strings:
      java.vm.name=OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM
      java.runtime.name=OpenJDK Runtime Environment
