Can the Download or Install of Java SE Updates Be Automated for Managed Systems?

(Doc ID 2017190.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 20, 2017

Applies to:

Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Is it possible to automatically download and install future Oracle Java SE (JDK/JRE) patch updates, instead of having to manually download the patches all the time?

An example of automated update would be such that whenever there is a new patch update available for a particular JDK/JRE major version (i.e. Java 6, Java 7, Java 8, etc.), a script can be run whereby a server can log in to Oracle Support site and download the latest patch update, which can be used to update an installed JDK/JRE.
