You can download from Oracle at:

In my posts, I use the self-extracting bin file.

One simple way to upgrade your JDK is to create a new java home directory (usr/java26 for example), install the new JDK, and then update any environment settings (JAVA_HOME, etc..) as well as any scripts that reference the JAVA_HOME.

Test the new JDK and, once everything looks in order, delete the old.
