Installing Java running jar files

I was able to install java plugin for mozilla and for running java jar files, previously, but i just re-installed redhat.

I can't remember how i installed java for running jar files.

I already installed the java plugin for mozilla successfully, though.

How do i install java so that i can run java jar files?

I am a newbie, so try to explain in as much detail as possible.

I am using RedHat 9.

Thank you, I really appreciate any help you might offer.
