IBM Java 1.8 on Linux - Nice and Silent

I'm tinkering with IBM UrbanCode Deploy (UCD) 6.2.2 on a Linux box, and needed to get IBM Java installed before starting out.

Following this: -

this is what I did: -

vi ~/ 


export _JAVA_OPTIONS="-Dlax.debug.level=3 -Dlax.debug.all=true"
export LAX_DEBUG=1
./ibm-java-sdk-8.0-3.12-x86_64-archive.bin -i silent -f 1>console.txt 2>&1

which resulted in IBM Java being installed in /opt/IBM/Java 

I'm doing this as a non-root user, ucdadmin, so needed to ensure that that user had read/write access to /opt/IBM.

For the record, this is what I have in console.txt post-installation: -

Checking for POSIX df.
Found POSIX df.
Checking tail options...
Using tail -n 1.
True location of the self extractor: /home/ucdadmin/ibm-java-sdk-8.0-3.12-x86_64-archive.bin
Creating installer data directory: /tmp/install.dir.20561
Creating installer data directory: /tmp/install.dir.20561/InstallerData /bin/sh:stdout [...Uninstaller Native Support is complete.]
Command.complete(): process completed with exit code: 0
Command.complete(): process '/bin/sh' complete

Finally, just to prove that Java is indeed installed: -

/opt/IBM/Java/bin/java -version

java version "1.8.0"
