I'm a complete linux beginner so please keep your answer understandable for a noob :) I wrote a little java servlet and, in order to run it, acquired a VPS which runs Centos 5.
now, in order to run my servlet I guess the first thing to do is to install the latest JRE. I have SSH access and googled the web for tutorials on how to install java through ssh but most of them are very old, have broken links, link to sun or are very confusing.
Can anyone give a simple step by step instruction on how to install the latest JRE through ssh?
and - could someone maybe also tell me how I can afterwards install my servlet and make sure that it's automatically run if the server is rebooted?
