I have to install the JDK on Centos 6 Linux server. Let's know the steps to install the JDK.
You can download the RMP from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html
Then use the following command to install it on Linux
$ rpm -Uvh jdk-7u67-linux-x64.rpm $ alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/java/latest/bin/java 2
If you are interested in Open JDK then you can also install it through the yum tool
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (Java SE 6)
yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (Java SE 7)
yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk
OpenJDK Development Environment (Java SE 7)
yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk-devel
OpenJDK Development Environment (Java SE 6)
yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel
Hope these commands will help you in getting the installation done.
