Download and Install Latest Oracle Java SE Runtime Environment

0 Shares

If you follow my blog you’ve probably seen the trend of my install scripts being transformed into evergreen scripts crawling vendors website for executables.

You see, at every new version of my Automation Framework I manually updated all download links in tons of install wrappers. This is very time consuming and not to mention that they’re outdated in just a couple of weeks.

So as I convert these I blog and put them up on my Github repo which is the base of my free Automation Framework Community Edition.

Today I’m very pleased to share an evergreen install script for Oracle Java SE Runtime Environment.

  1. Running this downloads and installs the latest version of java matching the bitness of the system. This seems to be due to the URL used in the $Page variable, as this site does a system check to recommend the version.
    Did you consider using the site: https://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp to be able to pull both x64 and x86 installations? I know our usage demands that both versions be installed on clients. I’m working on tweaking the script to account for this, but wondering if you attempted and ran into any walls.
    Thanks!
