What I meant above was that you could forcefully remove java using "rpm -e --nodeps packagename". The other option I mentioned, would be to remove java using YUM (which is what ehawk explained above) and take note of the packages that are removed along with java and then reinstall them using yum once you have completed the upgrade.
