I am trying to install the Java Development Kit. Instructions are here:
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/technotes/guides/install/linux_jdk.html#BJFCDAIB


I can't make any progress with these commands. Can anyone provide a step by step instruction? I have the .tar.gz file downloaded and sitting in my downloads folder.

Thats the download for Oracles JDK. Linux Lite uses Open JDK, install the development kit it by opening a terminal and doing:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk
