Hi. Just a note that there are a some errors from namcap on this package:

jre7 E: Dependency glib2 detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/', 'usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/jre/lib/amd64/', 'usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/jre/lib/amd64/', 'usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/jre/lib/amd64/', 'usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/jre/lib/amd64/', 'usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/jre/lib/amd64/', 'usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/jre/lib/amd64/', 'usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/jre/lib/amd64/'])
jre7 E: Dependency libxml2 detected and not included (libraries ['usr/lib/'] needed in files ['usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/jre/lib/amd64/'])

Possibly libxml2 and glib2 should be added to dependencies.

There are also a number of errors of the "is an uninstalled dependency" type, for example:

jre7 W: Referenced library '' is an uninstalled dependency (needed in files ['usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/jre/lib/amd64/'])
jre7 W: Referenced library '' is an uninstalled dependency (needed in files ['usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/jre/lib/amd64/'])

These also also flagged by checkrebuild's ldd check:

ldd /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/jre/lib/amd64/                                                                           => not found                                                                                                    => not found                                                                                                   

ldd /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/jre/lib/amd64/                                                                           => not found                                                                                                    => not found

Also, as per recent changes to SPDX the license field needs updating, see

jre7 E: custom:Oracle is not a valid SPDX license identifier. See for valid identifiers, or prefix the identifier with 'LicenseRef-', if it is custom.

Thanks for maintaining.

Looks like java can be downloaded here

Direct link:

Seems that download page has two archives under different license. First archive (and link above, is with GPL + classpath exception) and second is with Oracle Binary License

And it has version 7u75, and latest from Oracle is 7u80

P.S. archives are JDK, but jre is bundled in sub-directory of archive.

It's no longer working.

Oracle now require to to register and accept license to download old Java releases.

I am wondering if AUR packages could use locally downloaded files? When using AUR.

Or perhaps there exist other builds, like OpenJDK?

If someone is looking for a quick link to the java download page, it's

After installing had to do: # find /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre -type d -exec chmod o+rx {} \; # find /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/ -name "bin" -exec chmod -R o+x {} \; # chmod -R o+r /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-jre/ Is it intended? Or my makepkg&pacman messed up permissions?

Just saw your comment, but it got fixed with:

You also need to modify the first line of the backup array, because it is referencing to amd64. This line should reference to i386 on i686 machines.

Det commented on 2015-07-16 09:08 (UTC)

Like you see, you only need to add the 'i686' to arch=(). :) I already had the md5sums_i686=()/source_i686=() in place, because I copied this over from bin32-jre7.
