Setting up JDK on Oracle Linux without downloading package

I was setting up my server when there is a need to have the JDK install and found the following guideline is useful for those that don't want to download the package, unzip and then install... just run to command.. Below is the guideline published @ http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5104817/how-to-install-java-sdk-on-centos

The following command will return a list of all packages directly related to Java. They will be in the format of java-.
$ yum search java | grep 'java-'
If there are no available packages, then you may need to download a new repository to search through. I suggest taking a look at Dag Wieers' repo. After downloading it, try the above command again.
You will see at least one version of Java packages available for download. Depending on when you read this, the lastest available version may be different.
java-1.7.0-openjdk.x86_64
The above package alone will only install JRE. To also install javac and JDK, the following command will do the trick:
$ yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk*
These packages will be installing (as well as their dependencies):
java-1.7.0-openjdk.x86_64
java-1.7.0-openjdk-accessibility.x86_64
java-1.7.0-openjdk-demo.x86_64
java-1.7.0-openjdk-devel.x86_64
java-1.7.0-openjdk-headless.x86_64
java-1.7.0-openjdk-javadoc.noarch
java-1.7.0-openjdk-src.x86_64
