Oracle JVM download using curl/wget
# Downloading Oracle JVM without browser
Oracle requires you to accept its licence agreement before downloading its JVM.
It's a pain for those of us who do automation, native packages, Jenkins JVM deployment on slave...
I used Firefox and Firebug to sniff network exchanges.

You should be able to download Oracle JVMs from anywhere now.
Enjoy
Thanks to Kevin Decherf blog (http://blog.kdecherf.com/2012/04/12/oracle-i-download-your-jdk-by-eating-magic-cookies/), where I found to avoid injecting cookies but use a specific header

Thanks, this worked like a charm. I updated the curl command for jdk 1.7 update 25 on macosx.
curl -L --header "Cookie: s_nr=1359635827494; s_cc=true; gpw_e24=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oracle.com%2Ftechnetwork%2Fjava%2Fjavase%2Fdownloads%2Fjdk7-downloads-1880260.html; s_sq=%5B%5BB%5D%5D; gpv_p24=no%20value" http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/7u25-b15/jdk-7u25-macosx-x64.dmg -o ~/Downloads/jdk-7u25-macosx-x64.dmg

Thank you both!

Fwiw this worked for me for Linux:

curl -L --header "Cookie: s_nr=1359635827494; s_cc=true; gpw_e24=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oracle.com%2Ftechnetwork%2Fjava%2Fjavase%2Fdownloads%2Fjdk7-downloads-1880260.html; s_sq=%5B%5BB%5D%5D; gpv_p24=no%20value" http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/7u25-b15/jdk-7u25-linux-x64.tar.gz -o jdk-7u25-linux-x64.tar.gz

How do I do this for other builds - such as the latest for 1.7? Just replace the build # or need to change other params too? Thanks

For me just

curl -L -b "oraclelicense=a" http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/7u60-b19/jdk-7u60-linux-x64.tar.gz -O

was ok...

In order to download some other version, just substitude http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/7u60-b19/jdk-7u60-linux-x64.tar.gz with the correct url - you can see it on the http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk7-downloads-1880260.html page.

Is there a way to download the embedded jre version this way also?
ex: http://download.oracle.com/otn/java/ejdk/8u33-b05/ejdk-8u33-fcs-linux-i586.tar.gz
none of the methods seems to work with packages not in the 'otn-pub' folder

For anyone reading this, the suggestion from @ivajloip is the best and simplest solution. More specifically, the whole magic is in the flag -b "oraclelicense=a". Just pass that to any oracle JDK you want to download and that's it, no need for that big cookie string using --header or anything like that

Thanks @ivajloip. An example would be
curl -L -b "oraclelicense=a" http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/8u131-b11/d54c1d3a095b4ff2b6607d096fa80163/jdk-8u131-linux-x64.tar.gz -O

Here's a script for downloading and setting up java:
