That's a good example of the cluster.. so many thanks to the Oracle 
legal department for disallowing redistribution..

FWIW, I maintain my own apt repository for oracle-java7-{jre,jdk,etc} 
packages. If you want to build proper deb packages for Debian/Ubuntu 
(I'm sure there's a similar project for RPM-based distros) (there is 
also some sort of Ubuntu PPA that does a similar build, but I don't do 
random PPAs):

  git clone
  cd oracle-java7
  sh ./
  dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us

and install the packages in that you want (just the jre, the jdk if you 
are building/testing, etc.)

Throw 'em in an apt repo for installation on many machines  :)
