    Question Recomended way of installing Oracle Java/JDK ?

    After it was removed(?) from the main repository, what is the recommended way (or best hack) to install Oracle Java JDK and related packages (like plug-in for Mozilla)? A way that actually work and preferably will make it possible to update later...

    Alternatively, how is the best way to globally (not just for one user) install Oracle Java/JDK after downloading it from Oracle, preferably in a way that lets it co-exist with other Java-versions (e.g. via the alternatives-facility)? Where should it be installed? How? Which configurations must be done?

    I've found after much trial and error that the webupd8 PPA is the way to go:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

    Following the instructions on the Easy Linux Tips Project - Install Java works perfectly.
