Latest JRE direct download URL

I realize the JRE direct download URL published in http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Java_Lau...E_installation (http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/downlo...ows-i586-p.exe) is somehow outdated.

May I know where I can get the direct download URL, for latest JRE 6?

Thanks.

The official Oracle/Java web-site is a good starting point to look for JRE download links
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...ads/index.html

JRE 6, Update 29 (Offline-Installer):
http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/j...ndows-i586.exe

JRE 7, Update 1 (Offline-Installer):
http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/j...ndows-i586.exe


Though instead of hard-coding the download URL's in your installer, it may be advisable to use an URL that points to a server under your control. This way you can easily redirect to the latest (supported) version at any time!

Thanks. However, 2 direct links given are not accessible. (Is it my problem?)

I will get the following message. (Try to clear your cookies)

I feel quite difficult to get direct download link for offline installer from Oracle site. As, they usually need you to tick on ratio box to agree on some kind of agreement.

and I realize when download is going on, the actual URL is

http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/j...e81e56d65c87ed

Look like we need a way to get AuthParam right?

It's probably a one-time session key.

And it probably will be different every time and only valid for a single download...

That's obviously because they want to prevent deep links
