Download Oracle Java JRE / JDK in linux using wget by bypassing license

Overview :

 

Oracle has recently disabled direct download of java from their servers. So to download java , users have to visit their site via web browser and have to  accept their  license and terms , then users will get the download link.

 

But if you are working of linux servers in which you can't access the web browser , then  you should use wget command on the console.

 

Use Below command to download java from linux console / terminal.

 

#  wget --no-cookies --no-check-certificate --header "Cookie: gpw_e24=http%3A%2F%2F
www.oracle.com%2F" "http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/7u25-b15/jdk-7u25-linux-x64.tar.gz"

 

Where :


Cookie: gpw_e24=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oracle.com%2F :- It is a single cookie for all that is needed to bypass license and terms


--no-cookies : - Cookies are a mechanism for maintaining server-side state.  The server sends the client a cookie using the "Set-Cookie" header, and the client responds with the same cookie upon further requests.

 

--no-check-certificate : - Don't check the server certificate against the available certificate authorities.  Also don't require the URL host name to match the common name presented by the certificate.

Just a few notes: --no-check-certificate : This is required because the starting http url does a redirect to a https url .. which has a certificate common name that doesn\'t match the host name. My browser doesn\'t seem to complain about this
