Direct downloads are no longer available. Create your Oracle account, download, and put in with the PKGBUILD.

New and improved. Now you can just download to ~/Downloads then run the update.

@frealgagu:

  1. I changed the jre8 url to java.com to show where I got the file. This only works for jre8. No other jre is available there. New Private Window and click through jre8 url and you will see that the download is available without a login using BundleID.

  2. Good to see that someone has found a tolerable solution to this problem. I have other packages that need this. The implementation seems a little buggy.

  3. The only way I can find to download Java files without a login is with a BundleID. Hashes are easy to find but I couldn't find the BundleID for 8u212 so I used the BundleID for 8u211 so at least one of all the Javas would download automatically. This should make jre8 very popular.

@severach

  1. How did you do with jre8 to download automatically?

  2. Could you add a DLAgent like oracle-sqldeveloper to print a note to user for dowload the archive indicating the URL.

  3. Why are you using the even downloads in jdk and odd downloads for jre?

Thanks in advance.

There's no way that change from Oracle is not against some rules of the GDPR!

let's hope a God mode programmer, link with the browser and request the login, so one does not have to be using the manual form to download the installer. ;)

Steps to install jdk

  • place in console> git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/jdk8.git

  • enter the folder> cd jdk8

  • then

  • enter the oracle website

  • create or login with your user

  • Download the version indicated by pkgbuild

- choose the type of architecture x86, x64, etc

- important to download with the extension .tar.gz

  • Save to the jdk8 folder that you created with git clone

  • in console inside the folder jdk8> makepkg -cCifs

  • the installation will begin

  • be aware that at the end you ask for a password,

depending on how you configured your system.

@severach In the sun-java-jdk8.desktop file please remove NoDisplay=true, and add Exec=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-jdk/jre/bin/java -jar %F so the desktop file can be used to set to open jar files from the context menu.

I didn't notice there were two versions on the same page.

@severach, out of curiosity, why are you using build u201 instead of u202? Shouldn't build u202 be newer and come with additional bug fixes?

@x4fyr: Validation for jce_policy-8.zip and jdk-8u201-linux-x64.tar.gz fails

I pulled a new copy. All checksums good and it builds. My java app runs in jdk8. Can you give me an example of what worked in 192 and doesn't work in 201?
