Ansible: Install Oracle Java

Most of my machines are provisioned through Ansible and also most require a running JDK. To support this process, I created an Ansible Role to install the JDK.

Installation

You can either use ansible-galaxy to install this role:

ansible-galaxy install deveth0.oracle-java

Or checkout this git-repository to your roles directory:

git clone https://github.com/deveth0/ansible-oracle-java.git deveth0.oracle_java

Variables

You can configure which java-version to use:

oracle_java_version: 8

By default the Java environment variables are set:

oracle_java_set_default: True

Example

- hosts: foo
  roles:
    - role: deveth0.oracle-java
      oracle_java_version: 7
