I have installed Java SE 8 on my Linux Ubuntu 13.04. Now I would like to share how to deploy Java SE 8 on Linux Ubuntu.
Firstly you download Java SE JDK 8 onhttp://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html.
After downloaded, we extract this file, for instance the file is jdk-8-linux-x64.tar.gz. Open Terminal and navigate where Java JDK is located.
Create folder /usr/bin/jvm if you don’t have it.
Move extracted file into /usr/bin/jvm
Install Java 8 for update-alternatives
Change security on file permission
Now we select and active java.
Please select number which Java 8 was installed.
After that, verify java version.
It should show Java 8 version.
Try to active for javac and javaws.
Now we configure JAVA_HOME. Open file .bashrc.
Add this script.
Save and close this file.
Now you are ready to use Java 8.
