Installing Oracle JDK for MacOS via Homebrew

MacOS has OpenJDK installed by default however I prefer to use Oracle’s version of JDK because its the official version. I don’t want to install it the same way Oracle instructs it on their docs as I find it very tedious. I’m a guy who loves automating stuff so I prefer to install it via Homebrew. I frequently do a clean install on my Mac every time there is a new version of OSX so I have to install JDK again and again. I’d rather just run a single installation script instead of heading over to Oracle’s website and following their instructions.
