Perhaps the easiest way is to use a torrent client like Azureus
It has a "create torrent" option.

You have to make the .bin file executable. as root,
chmod a+x *.bin
will do it, as long as you're in the same directory as the file. That will do the java install. The rpm -i command would work if it was just an rpm, but it isn't. The filename ends in .bin, so rpm wouldn't work.
