Lately I tried to install Oracle JDK in one of my Ubuntu servers on Amazon EC2 instance. Unfortunately the inbuilt installers support the installation of OpenJDK.
For some requirements, I was in need of installing a specific version of JDK and test my application, you could get the older version from Oracle Site. I used the following script from one of the blogs, hope it helps someone.
#!/usr/bin/env bash wget -O 'jdk-7u80-linux-x64.tar.gz' --no-cookies --no-check-certificate --header 'Cookie:gpw_e24=http://www.oracle.com; oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie' 'http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/7u80-b15/jdk-7u80-linux-x64.tar.gz' tar -xvf jdk-7u80-linux-x64.tar.gz sudo mkdir /usr/lib/jvm sudo mv ./jdk1.7* /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0 sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/java" "java" "/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0/bin/java" 1 sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/javac" "javac" "/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0/bin/javac" 1 sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/javaws" "javaws" "/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0/bin/javaws" 1 sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/java sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/javac sudo chmod a+x /usr/bin/javaws
The Key here is Oracle need you to accept the license terms before using the any version of Oracle JDK. You could do the same from the scripting by just adding
--no-cookies --no-check-certificate --header 'Cookie:gpw_e24=http://www.oracle.com; oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie' params to the
Alternative, you could download the installers/zip files from external CDNs, like REUCON, move it to EC2 instance through SFTP and install it.
