First, Download the required jdk-7u<version>-linux-x64.tar.gz from site. If you are trying to install on a normal Linux other than rpm based Linux then you need to follow the below steps.

Step 1-> Go the directory where you have downloaded.
Step 2-> provide this command to untar the tar ball
  tar –zvxf jdk-7u<version>-linux-x64.tar.gz
Step 3->Delete the jdk-7u<version>-linux-x64.tar.gz file (for saving the disk space)

That’s it you have installed the jdk in the current directory.

Installing on RPM based Linux :
Once downloading is completed.

Step 1-> Go the directory where RPM is placed.
Step 2-> execute the below command
  rpm –ivh jdk-7u<version>-linux-i586.rpm

That’s it installation is done. No need to reboot
