How do I install Oracle 's JRE/JDK on a Bright Cluster?

After downloading  the JDK (or JRE)  RPM package from Oracle you can install it as
follows:


 rpm -Uvh  --relocate /usr/java=/cm/shared/apps/java jre-7u55-linux-x64.rpm

 cd /cm/shared/apps/java

 ln -s jre1.7.0_55 current


After that you need to add an environment modules file:

mkdir -p /cm/shared/modulefiles/orcale/java
cd /cm/shared/modulefiles/oracle/java
Create a text file called  jre1.7.0_55

Add the following contents to that file:

#%Module -*- tcl -*-
##
## modulefile
##
proc ModulesHelp { } {

puts stderr "\tAdds Oracle Java JRE 1.7.0_55 to your environment variables,"
}

module-whatis "adds Adds Oracle Java JRE 1.7.0_55 to your environment variables"

set root /cm/shared/apps/java/jre1.7.0_55
prepend-path PATH $root/bin
prepend-path LD_LIBRARY_PATH $root/lib:$root/lib64
setenv JAVA_HOME $root

 

 

Verify that the correct version of Java is used:


[root@kerndev java]# module load oracle/java
[root@kerndev java]# which java
/cm/shared/apps/java/jre1.7.0_55/bin/java
[root@kerndev java]#
