      The RNH section of the installation instructions for JBoss Enterprise Application Platform did not instruct customers to enable the Supplementary / Extra channel.

      The installation failed if the customer did not have the <literal>java-1.5.0-ibm</literal> and <literal>java-1.5.0-ibm-devel</literal> packages installed.

      The Installation Guide has been updated to include instructions for installing the Supplementary / Extra channel.

      Description

      Section 6.2 of the installation guide, Installation using RHN, says you need to add the jbappplatform-4.3.0-[i386|x86_64]-[server-5|as-4|as-5]-rpm channel. You also need to add the RHEL Supplementary channel so that you can install the java-1.5.0-devel package. That is required even if you have Java 1.6 installed, due to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=503050
