let's say you downloaded j2sdk1.4.1_01 and placed it in /usr/local

#edit/ add to /root/.bash_profile

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/j2sdk1.4.1_01
export PATH=$PATH:${JAVA_HOME}/bin

to check version
java -version

You can also set the java classpath at runtime with the -c option of java.
java -c <Path to class/jar/zip files to be included i nthe classpath> <java class name to be run>
