In my approach, log-in Raspberry Pi via ssh, and download using wget. In order to ignore server's certificate in wget, option of --no-check-certificate have to be added.
$ wget --no-check-certificate

After downloa, run the command:
sudo tar zxvf jdk-8-ea-b117-linux-arm-vfp-hflt-20_nov_2013.tar.gz -C /opt

The JDK will be installed in /opt/jdk1.8.0/bin/
