The absolute cross section $\sigma$(E) of the radiative capture reaction p(7Be,$\gamma$)8B at the center-of-mass energy E = 992 keV has been measured using a radioactive 7Be ion beam and a windowless gas target system filled with H2 gas. The 8B residual nuclides were detected with a recoil separator consisting of momentum and velocity filters and a $\Delta$E-E detector telescope. The 8B yield was observed concurrently with the 7Be+p elastic scattering yield, relating $\sigma$(E) to the Rutherford scattering cross section. The resulting value, $\sigma(E)
= 0.41 \pm 0.11$ $\mu$b, leads to an S(E) factor at zero energy of $S(0) = 16 \pm 4$ eV b, in fair agreement with recommended values.
