Don't know if it's the "correct" way to do it or not, but I just extracted the new java into /usr so I would have a /usr/jdk.x.x.x directory containing the new jdk then I would mv /usr/java /usr/java.orig and then link my new java to the original link ln -s /usr/jdk.x.x.x /usr/java and verify with java -version that I was using the correct version. You can also just modify your path so the new java version bin is first.

This is how I would do it as well

moving/renaming /usr/java is unreliable and would make the system unsupported. The JVM installed with the OS shouldn't be altered. If you want a different version, just install it elsewhere and either call it explicitly of adjust you PATH.

Care to elaborate on why it would be unreliable? Not being a smart ass, just curious is all.

I just mean you should never change a file belonging to the OS, outside of course those designed to be editable like configuration files. Any Solaris update or patch operation might silently reverse your changes.
