Hmm.  I ran the executed the bin file, edited /etc/profile so that PATH included 
the "bin" directory of the sun jdk directory, added environment variable 
JDK_HOME,  deleted the /usr/bin/java symlink from java -> /etc/alternative/java, 
and everything works, or at least well enough for me to run the Eclipse C++ IDE, 
which was my goal.  

Maybe adding the jdk was unnecessary for Eclipse to work?

Could you unpack "just won't do", or point to a discussion of the issue?
