Can't install java 7 on linux mint 12


I am trying to install java 7 on my computer. I downloaded the tar.gz, and decompressed it, but when I use ./configure it tells me

bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

what do I do?

Only source packages that use "autotools" have a configure file.

Java is a binary package. Install : Post # 2 here ..
