unless you're philosophically opposed to a closed source, binary distrobution

the original is still the best

sun microsystems java2 jvm for linux
http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

if that's too unpalatable, you can grab a GPL'd one

I think that it is better to have the blackdown version as I have heard that the JRE from sun has some compatibilty problems with some browsers(Mozilla , I think).But I am not sure, and you can try the one you like.

I've seen blackdown recommended. It's being developed for linux with the blessings of Sun.
