How to install Sun java

I cannot seem to install Sun java. I have
Quote:
jre-6u23-linux-i586-rpm.bin
sitting on my desktop.

I need this java to run a special program that requires Sun java.

I will add that I am quite new to Fedora so still in the intense learning curve.

As root, make the .bin file executable and invoke it
Code:
chmod a+x jre-6u23-linux-i586-rpm.bin 
./jre-6u23-linux-i586-rpm.bin

Re: How to install Sun java

For future use, you could go to the Java website and follow instructions there to download and install. I usually don't install openjava, but install the Sun Java from Oracle.

You don't even need the first chmod command if you call the script indirectly from sh, ie.
if you tell 'sh' shell to run that bin file as a target:
