Assuming this is the sun java package, this is REALLY out of date.
Current for the 1.4.2 series is _10.

I'd recommend getting the sun sdk rpms from java.sun.com, and
installing the sun-java-compat package from jpackage.org, as it makes
things loads easier to get running. Alternatively(slightly more work),
you can grab the sdk .bin file from the sun site, and get the
appropriate nosrc.rpm from jpackage and build a solid java rpm.
jpackage.org is an excellent project and they've got some pretty good
docs on their site about how to do this.
