Have you tried just checking the Sun site?  Are you looking just for the JVM 
or the JRE?
Click on the download link, and you'll find the Sun J2SE download kit 
available in an rpm.bin format.  Basically, you download the rpm.bin file, 
and execute it.  It will extract the rpm.  Then you can just rpm -i the 
extracted java.rpm file.

Good luck.
