Automatically update Java on Ubuntu Linux

With the rate of updates and security patches for Java, administration of your Ubuntu machines can become tedious. There’s a better way… allow it to check for and update with your other software. The steps are easy…


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

NOTE: You can also install java8 in the same manner with:
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

NOTE: The Java Control Panel can sometimes be hard to locate, it will be at the following:
/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-oracle/bin/ControlPanel
