I'm new and I really need to know how to install java, can anyone help me?

Asked by Geoffrey P on 2012-08-11

I'm very new to linux and Ubuntu, and I haven't gotten the hang of things yet. Can anyone give me a walkthrough on how to download java? ( Please be very descriptive, It won't hurt but it will probably help a lot). Thanks!
