yeah, it's actually a no brainer, the file you are looking for is simply
a .bin file with a really long name (from Sun's web unique download URL)
but I always just rename it to java15.bin or java1564.bin and just
./java15.bin and you agree to the license and it does the rest.
I will try to dig up the URL from Sun, i'd post my package but would
rather you trust Sun instead of me as i'm sure they'd appreciate.
