I use this :


It's a nosrc.rpm that makes an rpm from the x64 binary tarball.

You have to update the spec file for the actual version being used.

I don't know if it is the right solution for everyone but it meets my 
needs just fine, every new Java release I just build it on one machine 
and distribute the resulting rpm to my other CentOS boxes that need 
Oracle Java.
