Hi, I'm running BackBox Linux 3.01. My question is how do i install latest version of Oracle Java development kit. How do i successfully install it without conflicting existing software & future updates of Oracle jdk when available.
The doubt i'm having is when i run the command "java -version" i get the following output.java version "1.7.0_15"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea7 2.3.7) (7u15-2.3.7-0ubuntu1~12.04.1)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode, sharing)
Since Oracle JDK comes with jre, Am i going to have any conflicts with the version already installed ? Please clarify this doubt for me.
Please do guide me on how to safely perform an update to Oracle JDK in the future!
UPDATE: After digging Internet i found this article. Its Easy to install Oracle jdk & install future updates using this method.

But i still have the doubt if this is going to have any conflict with existing jre!
