First of all; thanks for a great way to install java6 on Ubuntu. It works like a charm.

I've tried to install java7, but somehow it fails on my machine. Here's the command line output:

tail -f /tmp/oab/

[x] Installing Java build requirements success
[x] Making build directories success
[x] Removing clones of success
[x] Cloning success
[x] Checking out v7.5-1 success
[x] Getting Java SE download page success
[x] Getting previous releases download page success
[x] Downloading jdk-7u5-linux-i586.tar.gz : failed
[i] Showing the last 5 lines from the logfile (/tmp/oab/
3091's retcode: 0
[x] Downloading jdk-7u5-linux-i586.tar.gz : http://: Invalid host name.
3108's retcode: 1

Any idea what the cause might be?


this is because oracle moved the java download page see #33

@ladios ladios Fix download link probing (#33, #34)
Update number is no longer part of the URL of the current release page.
This patch makes the script downloads the current release page first,
and then tries to find a matching version. If not found, then looks for
it in the archive page.
