RPM Naming convention for JDK 9 seems to break the yum upgrade feature.

RPM Naming convention for JDK 9 seems to break the yum upgrade feature.

For example when I installed the first release of JDK 9 the name of the package was JDK-9

yum install jdk-9

When jdk 9.0.1 came out I was expecting to be able to do just as with JDK 8 and do a yum update with the new package and be done with it.

But because the new package is internally named JDK-9.0.1 yum is not seeing it as a new version of the JDK-9

I think that this is a bug.

Thank you
