Download a supported JRE, JDK, API tar.gz or self-extracting archive from
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads and execute make-jpkg file with
the downloaded file. The program asks the user for additional information and builds a
Debian binary package in the current directory.
The program requires about 200 MB free disk space in a temporary directory. The temporary
directory defaults to /tmp but you can specify an alternate directory by setting the
environment variable TMPDIR.
To install Oracle(TM) 7 Standard Edition JDK, download a release - 64 bits version of
update 2 from
this example - and invoke make-jpkg:
This generate a Debian package in the current directory, that can be installed using dpkg:
dpkg -i oracle-java7-jdk_7u2_amd64.deb
When you're done, you can delete initial download as well as generated package:
rm <path_to_download_directory>/jdk-7u2-linux-x64.tar.gz oracle-
TMPDIR base directory used for temporary files (defaults to /tmp)
