I've read website http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/JavaOnCentOS.  I am a total 
newbie with CentOS, but currently, with update 21 of the Java 6 JDK and CentOS 
5.5, the installing the JDK appears to be simpler:

1. Download the latest *rpm.bin jdk (as of today,jdk-6u21-linux-i586-rpm.bin) 
fromhttp://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/widget/jdk6.jsp

2. chmod +x the downloaded file.
3. su
4. Execute the file.

The main advantage of this procedure is that you do not need to build an RPM.
