java:java7onlinux

Install java 7 on linux by hand

Upgrading the alternatives system for a just downloaded Java

The best and more complete instructions I have found are these: http://askubuntu.com/questions/55848/how-do-i-install-oracle-java-jdk-7

I reproduce them for just in case the other site dissapears the entry.

The same for Java 8

Download and uncompress java

Download the java binaries and uncompress them. Let's say you have downloaded into /usr/java.

Oracle guys usually install it on /usr/java, creating two links: default and latest, who points to the just installed java version.

So, the current java version will be in /usr/java/default

Create an alteratives system for the new java

Create a file /usr/java/current/.java-1.7.0-oracle.jinfo with the following content:

alias=java-7-oracle
priority=100
section=non-free
