View Full Version : [Perl] Sun/Oracle JDK Updater

October 3rd, 2012, 08:12 PM
I'm trying to make a script in perl which can check for updates to sun/oracle's java jdk.
I'm a little stuck here since I canít download the file if I donít visit their download page and accept the OTN license.

But I do have a cookie which i can use to grab the file using wget.

wget --no-cookies --header "Cookie: gpw_e24=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oracle.com%2Ftechnetwork% 2Fjava%2Fjavase%2Fdownloads%2Fjdk-7u7-linux-x64download-1505220.html;" http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/7u7-b10/jdk-7u7-linux-x64.rpm


is the

$version followed by the $update followed by the $build numbers
Now, I was having a thought of having my script loop through all possible values for $version, $update and $build. But this is going to take too much time.
Does anyone have a better thought on how to do this ?
