speaking purely in generic terms, Sun Java is isually installed to 
/usr/java/jre_version/.....   or /usr/jdk/jdk_version/..  and then 
generally /urs/bin/java links (or gnu alternates or whatever) to the 
'current' system wide default.    but, Java -can- be installed 
absolutely anywhere you want to put it.   obviously RPM packages enforce 
their own ideas of where things go.
