Getting ready for Java development on Ubuntu

It has been a while since I coded in Java. Now that I am getting back in to the thick of it, I thought to use Ubuntu distribution of Linux. Turns out with 11.10 version (and probably earlier) it does not support Sun/Oracle JDK and the default package manager only installs Open JDK.

All of this wouldn't be an issue if I didn't want IntelliJ Idea as my IDE. IntelliJ prints an ugly warning that Open JDK isn't supported.

On Oracle's java website they don't provide a deb package for Ubuntu. I wasn't successful converting deb to rpm.

Turns out installing binary (bin) jdk on Ubuntu works like a charm and Intelli Idea is happy.

Now it is my turn to be a happy java developer again. :-)

It has been a while since I posted anything here. While I come up with something new to write, here is post that will give you insight on the topic. Thanks to my friend Larry for the post.
