During installation of java using rpm file I found issues many times. after that I found a better way to install java from sun site, using below steps I have installed java successfully many times without facing any issues, we can also install multiple version of java easily if required.
Downloading latest java Archive:
|# wget –-“http://download.orcale.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u101-b14/jdk-8u101-linux-x64.tar.gz”
# tar –xvzf jdk-8u101-linux-x64.tar.gz
Install java with alternatives:
After extracting java archive file, we just need to set up use newer version of java using alternatives.
# alternatives –install /usr/bin/java java /opt/jdk1.8.0_101/bin/java 2
# alternatives –config java
There are 3 programs which provide ‘java’.
* 1 /opt/jdk1.7.0_71/bin/java
+ 2 /opt/jdk1.8.0_45/bin/java
Enter to keep the current selection[+], or type selection number: 4
At this point JAVA 8 has been successfully installed on your system. We also recommend to setup javac and jar commands path using alternatives
#alternatives –install /usr/bin/jar jar /app/jdk1.8.0_101/bin/jar 2
#alternatives –install /usr/bin/javac javac /app/jdk1.8.0_101/bin/javac 2
#alternatives –set jar /app/jdk1.8.0_101/bin/jar
#alternatives –set javac /app/jdk1.8.0_101/bin/javac
