Setup oracle java 7 on Ubuntu 14.04

I wanted to try oracle jdk vs openjdk performance for the DartEditor

I chose


that I extracted to


Then comes the configuration:

# One time setup

# local var
$ LOCAL_JAVA_TOP=/opt/apps/jdk1.7.0_71

# setup
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java $LOCAL_JAVA_TOP/bin/java 110
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/javac javac $LOCAL_JAVA_TOP/bin/javac 110

Then to change configuration:

# To change configuration between openjdk / oracle
sudo update-alternatives --config java
sudo update-alternatives --config javac

At first, Oracle looks slightly slower in a simple test where I started exited the editor with a complex project. However the overall experience looks slightly be completed after some days of usage...
