Installing OpenJDK 8 via yum/Puppet?

Hi Daniel,

As far as I know, OpenJDK 8 is only available via yum for the latest
Fedora at this moment, I don't think it has been build for Centos 6.x
(although it may be that somebody did an "unofficial" package).

I don't know if the fedora package will work out of the box, but you
can try it (it won't probably), but it should be relatively
straightforward to adapt the spec file at this point.
