Unless you have more than one version of java installed,
there shouldn't be any set-up required for Ubuntu 9.04 .

Please show the output from the command : java -version

And no, apt-get will install to
only, and make links from
to /etc/alternatives/ , and from
' /etc/alternatives/j** ' to /usr/bin
so all applications requiring the java
functions can find it.

And yes, any package can be unpacked to a location
by your choice. Then configuration lines / files
must be made, for applications to find the libs
and binaries from the package.
