How to install oracle java 7 update 11 (jdk-7u11) on debian linux

Currently you can’t install the new java sdk 7 update 11 from oracle using java_package. Usually you can simply follow this instruction: Installing oracle jre / sdk on debian.

Unfortunately the error is: No matching plugin was found.

But you can modify the script /usr/share/java-package/ to accept the new package:

<       "jdk-7u"[0-9]"-linux-i586.tar.gz") # SUPPORTED
<           j2se_version=1.7.0+update${archive_name:6:1}${revision}
>       "jdk-7u"[0-9][0-9]"-linux-i586.tar.gz") # SUPPORTED
>           j2se_version=1.7.0+update${archive_name:6:2}${revision}
<       "jdk-7u"[0-9]"-linux-x64.tar.gz") # SUPPORTED
<           j2se_version=1.7.0+update${archive_name:6:1}${revision}
>       "jdk-7u"[0-9][0-9]"-linux-x64.tar.gz") # SUPPORTED
>           j2se_version=1.7.0+update${archive_name:6:2}${revision}

Worked for me:

The Debian package has been created in the current directory. You can
install the package as root (e.g. dpkg -i oracle-j2sdk1.7_1.7.0+update11_amd64.deb).

(#:/tmp)- dpkg -i oracle-j2sdk1.7_1.7.0+update11_amd64.deb

There is also a bug report: Bug#698108: jdk7u11 not supported

Edit: also works for java 7 update 12 (jdk-7u12), java 7 update 13 (jdk-7u13), java 7 update 14 (jdk-7u14) and java 7 update 15 (jdk-7u15)

Edit: Oh boy, too many updates recently.
