Autoupdate Java by shell

Hi all!

inspired by the great @rtrouton , I adjusted his superb script on installing Java.

I added a check to see if java has been installed or if a newer version is available, a bit like my Flash Update script, for which I borrowed heavily on other guys work.

Hope you guys can use this, and if you have any suggestions, please let me know!

#!/bin/bash -e

# This script downloads and installs the latest Oracle Java 8 for compatible Macs

# Determine OS version
osvers=$(sw_vers -productVersion | awk -F. '{print $2}')

# Specify the "OracleUpdateXML" variable by adding the "SUFeedURL" value included in the
# /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Info.plist file. 
#
# Note: The "OracleUpdateXML" variable is currently specified in the script as that for 
# Java 8 Update 20, but the XML address embedded with Java 8 Update 20 is not special in 
# this regard. I have verified that using the address for Java 8 Update 5 will also work 
# to pull the address of the latest Oracle Java 8 installer disk image. To get the "SUFeedURL"
# value embedded with your currently installed version of Java 8 on Mac OS X, please run
# the following command in Terminal:
#
# defaults read "/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Info" SUFeedURL
#
# As of Java 8 Update 20, that produces the following return:
#
# https://javadl-esd-secure.oracle.com/update/mac/au-1.8.0_20.xml
#

OracleUpdateXML="https://javadl-esd-secure.oracle.com/update/mac/au-1.8.0_20.xml"

# check if newer version exists
plugin="/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Info.plist"

Hi Peter,

Looking at my Casper inventory: Java 8 Update 60.app Java 8 Update 60 build 27 /Users/ryan.s/Library/Application Support/Java/Java 1.8.60.27/Java 8 Update 60.app No

I'm trying to debug, can I cannot seem to find anything broken...

Hi guys, @ryan.s @davidacland @Echevarria

Seems you're right, Oracle played with its own installer app.

Can you test the script underneath? I made some changes and tests in my testlab seems to be ok...

The current script is erroring ever since Oracle released a 3 digit version number.

The $onlineversionmin variable is returning 10 instead of 101. $onlineversion2 also returning 1.8.0_10 instead of 1.8.0_101

While using variables like the below work for two digit version numbers, they break when Oracle released version 101. onlineversion2=${onlineversion1:50:9} onlineversionmain=${onlineversion2:2:1}

I'm making some modifications on the script to allow support for both two and three digit version numbers.
I changed it so that if Java isn't installed, it exits. (we didn't want users in our environment to get java installed if they didn't have it).

Also added functionality to remove the /tmp/au-1.8.0_20.xml once the script ran regardless if it installs or not. Previously it removed if the software needed to be updated.

Hey buddy i wanted to see if any of the Java update scripts listed were able to address the issue with the policy completing successfully but the version is still the same. I ran this script and the following results took place but the update didn't happen:

@bjones If you look at my post above, the issue is that the script isn't finding the new version number 101. As you can see in your log, it thinks the version number is Main 8, Minor 10, which is why the script is exiting.

See below in bold for what it should return.

I'm running Java 8 Update 111 build 14 on my test machine.

 Current version is Java 8 Update 111 build 14
Installed main version is 8
Installed minor version is 111

And just to be sure, I attach the latest version once more.

@peterloobuyck : Hi Peter. The target machine is running 10.12.2. I note that Oracle released a Java update in the last day or two, but I don't know if that's relevant.

peterlbk

@stevenjklein hi steven, i tested it on a similar machine. It should work even after the update. You're not behind a proxy are you?

stevenjklein
Contributor II

@peterloobuyck : Okay, I decided to save it as a shell script, make it executable, and run it on the target machine.

It refused to run.

I checked, and discovered it had Mac line breaks (CR instead of LF). (I know, rookie mistake!)

I used this nifty bit of PERL to fix it:

perl -pi -e 's/
/
/g' install_Java.sh

And now it works.

Thanks for your help!

Great script!

I've made the following modifications to my copy of the script.

The main reason was to only download the manual.jsp file once, but also make it work on clients that hasn't been updated in a long time (and therefore only have two letters for the currentvermin string).

edit: added the " | head -1 " suggested by @jpiperbe, since this seems to still be the latest version of the script

jpiperbe

@pmex I had to add a

| head -1

between the grep and awk on line 49, for some reason the jsp had "Download for Mac OS X" twice so there were two URLS. (May have been a recent change) but other than that, worked great.

jwojda

is this for Java or the JDK?

pmex

@jpiperbe I fond that out as well. Unfourtunately I didn't see your post until I went here today to correct myself πŸ˜‰

JayDuff

I am running the latest version of the script (2/22/17 at 8:53 AM by @pmex ) with @jpiperbe 's | head -1 fix.

The script runs, and I am pretty sure it's installing, as the next time I run, it shows java installed as 8 U 131, which matches the latest version, so it quits. However, when I go into Terminal, and type java --version, it says I have no JRE.

So, looking at the script, it seems like this is updating the Internet Plug-in. Indeed, Safari sees and recognizes it.

So, how can I modify this script to install the actual JRE? We use PowerSchool, and the gradebook requires a JRE.

Thanks for this great script!

herbiehandal

@JayDuff Its been a while since you asked the question, but here it goes anyways. The results you are getting from your script seem to be accurate. Running java --version in terminal look for the JSE and will try to install if its not found. This script is dealing with Java JRE, not JSE.

You can check the current version via System Preferences or Safari > Preferences > Websites > Plugins.

Thank you for this script. I've been using for several months now and it has been a huge help with updating/installing the Java JRE in our environment.

I am running into a (hopefully) simple issue, however. The script is running flawlessly, as written, except it doesn't currently update to the current Patch Management version. Currently, the JRE version in Patch Management in the JSS is 8u162, but the manual download page is currently recommending 8u161. Running the script does upgrade all of our users to 8u161, but we still show are 0% patched since Patch Management is looking for 8u162.

We rely on the Patch Management reports to generate our monthly reports. These reports are presented to upper management, so I'd like to find a way to not need to document exceptions each month.

Are there others who are experiencing this? How have you solved the issue?

techjason
New Contributor III

@dmuncey I have seen the same issue and it is still happening now, a month after your post. I am not sure why this is happening the newest version released by Oracle is 161.

robinsonjo

Hello @dmuncey and @techjason ,

We recently released two Software Titles specifically for the CPU release of Java 8. CPU meaning critical patch update and that it follows Oracle's recommended security update path.

The Software titles are named: Java SE Runtime Environment JRE8 CPU
Java SE Development Kit 8 CPU

The other Software Titles contain both the CPU and PSU updates and that's why it shows the PSU version of .162 as the latest. The above mentioned will show .161 as the latest.

For more information about the difference between PSU and CPU versions please reference: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/cpu-psu-explained-2331472.html

Hope this helps!
