Intalling Java JDK in Ubuntu

I just got these steps from the net a few years back and decided to put it here when a friend asked me for a howto.

1. Install the java package from the ubuntu package repository. This contains make-jpkg for creating the debian package later.
sudo apt-get install java-package

2. Download the jdk package from here. As of this writing Java SE 6 is available.

3. Create a debian package out of the binary package you downloaded.
fakeroot make-jpkg jdk-6u23-linux-i586.bin

4. Install the newly created debian package.
sudo dpkg -i sun-j2sdk1.6_1.6.0+update23_i386.deb

That's it. Enjoy!
