wget http://download.java.net/java/GA/jdk9/9/binaries/jdk-9+181_linux-x64_bin.tar.gz

UPDATED FOR JDK 8u191

TAR GZ:

wget --no-cookies --no-check-certificate --header "Cookie: gpw_e24=http%3a%2F%2Fwww.oracle.com%2Ftechnetwork%2Fjava%2Fjavase%2Fdownloads%2Fjdk8-downloads-2133151.html; oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie;" "https://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u191-b12/2787e4a523244c269598db4e85c51e0c/jdk-8u191-linux-x64.tar.gz"

RPM:

wget --no-cookies --no-check-certificate --header "Cookie: gpw_e24=http%3a%2F%2Fwww.oracle.com%2Ftechnetwork%2Fjava%2Fjavase%2Fdownloads%2Fjdk8-downloads-2133151.html; oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie;" "https://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u191-b12/2787e4a523244c269598db4e85c51e0c/jdk-8u191-linux-x64.rpm"

RPM:

  wget -c --header "Cookie: oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie" http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u131-b11/d54c1d3a095b4ff2b6607d096fa80163/jdk-8u131-linux-x64.rpm

 wget -c --header "Cookie: oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie" http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u131-b11/d54c1d3a095b4ff2b6607d096fa80163/jdk-8u131-linux-x64.tar.gz

RPM using curl:

 curl -v -j -k -L -H "Cookie: oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie" http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u131-b11/d54c1d3a095b4ff2b6607d096fa80163/jdk-8u131-linux-x64.rpm > jdk-8u112-linux-x64.rpm

In all cases above, subst 'i586' for 'x64' to download the 32-bit build.

  • -j -> junk cookies
  • -k -> ignore certificates
  • -L -> follow redirects
  • -H [arg] -> headers

curl can be used in place of wget.

curl -v -j -k -L -H "Cookie: oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie" http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/7u79-b15/jdk-7u79-linux-x64.rpm > jdk-7u79-linux-x64.rpm

Once again, make sure you specify the correct URL for the version you are downloading. You can find the URL here: Oracle JDK download site

ORIGINAL ANSWER FROM 9th June 2012

If you are looking to download the Oracle JDK from the command line using wget, there is a workaround. Run the wget command as follows:

wget --no-cookies --header "Cookie: gpw_e24=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oracle.com" "http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/7/jdk-7-linux-x64.tar.gz"

Be sure to replace the download link with the correct one for the version you are downloading.
