shell scripts and installing java..

well i finally got blackdown java installed and working, what a job.. I have oh about 15 machines that I need to install it on..

Can someone point me in the right direction of a shell script to do it for me?

I would write a script to do it, but know nothing about writing a script and most resources are too complex for this noob..

Download java from sun:

or try typing this. I think it will work but can't test it right now.
" wget "

download it to a directory like /tmp or something easy.
Now just cd to the directory it is in and type

That will run the installer and you will be done.


Scripts are EASY to write. Especially one to do something as trivial as install java. Check out these tutorials. The experience is good for you.
