SUN's java
You do not
it no longer exists
there is NO "sun java " any more


Oracle bought sun

you can install Oracles java
but the default RHEL6.5 is OpenJDK 1.6

RHEL 6.5 is the current and not RHEL 6.4

BUT
if you CHANGE the default openjdk with Oracles java 1.6 ( DEAD -DO NOT USE !!!! )
or Oracles java 1.7 ( it is VERY DIFFERENT than 1.6 ) you MUST set alternatives


openjdk1.6 "should" already be installed but if not than as the above post
"yum install java-1.6.0-openjdk"

but you MUST have a registered and PAID FOR support license from redhat to install software
you must buy the required support contract

If for any other specific reason, like me, where i use FreeRapid Downloader app which wants Sun/Oracle Java only and not OpenJDK to run, then check the following link.

Following links cover all - installing JDK/JRE 32/64 bit. Pick and run only lines that are applicable to you:

Install Sun/Oracle Java JDK/JRE 6u45 on Fedora 19/18, CentOS/RHEL 6.4/5.9

Install Oracle Java JDK/JRE 7u45 on Fedora 19/18, CentOS/RHEL 6.4/5.10
