How to Download JDK and JRE 7 From My Oracle Support

“IMPORTANT: Downloading JDK and JRE 7 from My Oracle Support requires an account with My Oracle Support.

As of July 14, 2015, JDK 7 and JRE 7 are no longer available for public download. Although the latest version of Oracle Forms, version 11.1.2.2.0 (11gR2) is supported to use JRE 8, it is currently NOT supported to use JDK 8 for Oracle Forms and Reports 11gR2 as well as for other Fusion Middleware products such as ADF (11g and 12c) and OHS (11g and 12c). However, as public downloads for Java 7 are no longer available, there are only two options to download JDK 7.

One method (requires an Oracle account) is to use the Oracle Java Archive: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/archive-139210.html

The second method involves downloading the JDK and JRE from My Oracle Support. The following steps will explain how you can download the latest JDK and JRE 7 from My Oracle Support:

  1. Log into https://support.oracle.com using your My Oracle Support account.
  2. Go to Patches & Updates
  3. Search for the following patches:
    1. JDK/JRE 7u79: 20418638
    2. JDK/JRE 7u80: 20418657
    3. Specify the OS platform of your server environment

Once the JDK and JRE are downloaded, you should be able to find both the JDK and the JRE for the particular OS you selected.”
