You can download the RMP from


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.
