Installing Oracle Java in Ubuntu via PPA 8
The java 8 is yet to come, but we can already test it, and ubuntu is even simpler to install it.
This only supports Ubuntu PPA 13:04, 12:10, 12:04, 11:10, 11:04, 10:10 and 10:04 as well as distributions corresponding to Linux Mint.
Just use the following commands, and ready.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa: webupd8team/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-installer-java8
To verify the installation and the current version of Java on your machine, simply run:
Who is poor and does not use ubuntu , you can use the link: download java
Changing between versions of java
Another thing, very cool, is switch between versions of java , that way you can test the java8 and subsequently switch between versions.
Just open the terminal and use the following command to list the "java" available on the machine.
The return should be something similar to:
java-1.6.0-openjdk-i386 1061 /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk-i386 java-1.7.0-openjdk-i386 1051 /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-i386 java-7-oracle 1062 /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-oracle java oracle-8-1063 /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle
And use the first words of each command to return the exchange of packets.
