How to install Oracle’s Java on to Ubuntu

Share Button

I just thought it’s time for another howto video and prepared you a video that walks you through the download and installation of Oracle’s Java. As you might know Ubuntu does not provide Oracle’s Java and the opensource java version is not quiet ready for prime time since there are applications out there that just won’t run on the replacements like openjdk. In this video clip I show you how to download the latest Java version, install it and set it so it will be the default Java on you system. This video is also the pre-requirement to my next video I am planing to publish and it is a how to get Tomcat Server installed. I hope you enjoy this video and I am looking forward to your comments and cretinism.


About Michael St. John

Michael St. John is a System Engineer in Albuquerque, NM. I am working with Linux since 1994 and started with the Linux Distribution Slackware. I used Slackware till I needed and more flexible and easier way to maintain my systems and I looked into Debian/Ubuntu and loved Ubuntu right away. I don't have to worry any longer about solving dependencies or compiling code every time an update was available to patch exploits or bugs and that when Ubuntu 8.04 was just released and the rest is history.
