i switched from ubuntu to fedora and everything looks not much easy as before, i'm beginner but i loved it.

my problem is i removed all the sources of openjdk by
yum -y remove java*
and installed oracle jdk and everything is fine while

java -version shows
java version "1.7.0_60"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_60-b19)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.60-b09, mixed mode)

And now i installed Libre Office which was downloading openjdk along with it and after installing LibreOffice

javac -version --> shows javac 1.7.0_60 (Oracle JDK) and
java -version --> shows
java version "1.8.0_xx"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM

how to set OracleJDK as default for runtime environement?? while keeping Libre office?(i mean OpenJdk Thanks in advance.

Thankyou! it solved my problem by looking into these alternatives commands. at first --config java just showed openjdk, as one option. I added oracle jdk as alternative by

sudo alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java <oracle jre="" path=""> 1
sudo update-alternatives --config java

i selected Oraclejre and everything is fine now!
