First question is why are you using Fedora 14? It's very old and updates are no longer available for it. First thing I would do is install 19 or 20.

"No more mirrors" probably just means that it can't find any repositories with Fedora 14 packages. Try again with Fedora 19/20 and you'll probably have a lot more luck.

Cheers

If you're stuck with Fedora 14 then I can only offer google.

I put "install jdk on fedora 14" in google and the first link has a list of suggestions and a procedure.

Now the next question is: WHY can't you install the latest Fedora???

Fedora 14 is ancient...IF you can even find packages for it, it's going to be a challenge to even make them work at this point.
