Installing Oracle’s Java (7) on Ubuntu (12.10)

Use case

Since the Java installation handling changed during the last Ubuntu releases (due to Oracle’s politics) most parts of my old post are out of date now.


I found a great instruction about how to install Oracle’s Java JDK on Ubuntu.
As I could not write it better I will just post the link here:

Side note

I prefer archiving several JDK versions, so I put each JDK under /opt/java/JDK-{VERSION}.
In order to not be forced to update my alternatives everytime when a new update gets released I created a symbolic link called “current” in the same directory (/opt/java/).
So in case of a new version I just need to update the symlink once.
