This article shows how to install or update Oracle JDK 7 in semiautomatic way under Linux operating systems, including Ubuntu, Debian and CentOS. Semi is because Oracle has its proprietary license you have to accept before downloading.

  2. Then download this bash script to the same directory where JDK is.
  3. Run the script as sudoer:

    sudo bash

If in the end of output you see something like

java version "1.7.0_51"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_51-b13)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.51-b03, mixed mode)
