The Sun java rpm isn't really an rpm. It tosses stuff outside the
reach of the standard path in /usr/java.  I would very strongly
recommend the sun-java-compat rpm from jpackage.org. It will set up
your java environment in a functional manner and change the alternates
settings such that you can actually use java.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
