auto scroll license agreement in bash

Hi all,

I have 30 server and i try to install some application on them which use java.

i want to run a script that install my application and the java.

but when you running the java binary it have a license agreement and and then he ask to confirm the agreement. as i been saying i dont wont to sit near every server and accept the agreement manually.

so for the accept i can add the below code in my script so it will answer yes automaticlly
./java.bin << EOF
but i cant reach the end of the license agreement? (manually i press 4 space or q) it use more or less to display the agreement. how can i auto scroll the license?
