that's the jre (Java Runtime Environment), not the jdk (Java Development Kit, that includes the jre).

That's often all you need though. Most Java programs distribute jars.

You could get the jdk package from a github mirror and then verify the integrity (SHA256):
Examples:
https://github.com/frekele/oracle-java/releases
https://github.com/ZachCheung/oracle-java-downloads
Oracle official SHA256 hashes:

Actually, you won’t get the source code of the Oracle JDK, but the binaries instead. The ‘jdk’ SlackBuild will extract these binaries from the downloaded archive, and create a Slackware package from them.

By the way, the SlackBuild will successfully build the Slackware package from the binaries that you can download once you are registered (I completed the process).

Thanks for all your replies . I was trying to figure out a way I can still keep on using slackrepo to automate the creation of the JDK slackbuild. Guess I'll just have to do this one manually from now on.

Unfortunately we cannot do much because providing alternative download links won't follow their licensing rules.
But I agree that this is getting very irritating.



Its a real pain in the ass ! I don't care about setting up an account it just screws up the scripts that automate the process. I got around by auto accepting the license but don't think there is a way to bypass the Login.




Thanks again

You can always download the file manually and place it in the correct location for slackrepo. You could essentially pin the version to 8u221 until you have time to download another one using the hintfile. This will prevent it from causing any slackrepo breaks in the future (but could lead you vulnerable to jdk bugs if you don't keep up with updates).

Thanks for the advice, I ended up modifying slackrepo so I can use the hintfiles to change the dependencies . So now I remove jdk and add either openjdk or JDK12 .


Thanks
