Debianizing Java

When you go to to download JDK, you find a disagreeable surprise, only a RPM or a BIN file is found. What's happening if you have a Debin/Ubuntu distribution? Probably you would like to work with a DEB file, but it is not available in java sun site. A simple solution can be done.

First you download the BIN JDK file you want to install. Then using synaptic, you download fakeroot aplication and make-jpkg application. And finally, you apply the next command, fakeroot make-jpkg .bin.

After a few moments you will have a .deb file, so you can install using dpkg tool. After that, because we want to execute by default this new java virtual machine/compiler, execute update-alternatives --config java, and choose the new jdk installed.

And thats all, as simple as you can imagine.

Can this possibly be this easy? Wow...the instructions on seem very confusing compared to this. I'll give this a try when I install java se 6.
