If you want to keep it simple, I would not try to install at the same
time the base CentOS OpenJdk RPMs and the Sun RPM.
If you don't care much about control (in the free software sense) on
your Java installation and just need the plugin, I guess you should go
for the Sun RPM after uninstalling the base OpenJdk packages.

Maybe some people on the list have other opinions / tips.
