Minimal Debian VM upgraded to wheezy / Jenkins with OpenJDK 7

I have upgraded my minimal Debian VM to current Debian stable (“wheezy”). It comes in OVA format which is deployable to Virtualbox or VMware.

The Debian system JDK, i.e. the location of java, javac, etc. commands in the PATH, is still OpenJDK 6 because that is the default-jdk on wheezy and the Jenkins deb packages from jenkins-ci.org depend on it. In particular this means that the Tomcat / Jenkins process itself is executed by OpenJDK 6.

But my Jenkins installer now also installs OpenJDK 7 and pre-configures it as the default JDK for Jenkins jobs. That means you can now use this Jenkins instance to build your Java 7 projects, as well as older Java projects.

Please follow the step-by-step installation instructions if you want to use the VM. It consists completely of Free / Open Source software. I provide it for download “as is” without any warranty of any kind.
