Jpackage one is the one to use as Sun's rpm according to my info isn't
compatible with redhat/fedora (from what I have read haven't tested
myself). Problem with jpackage is that they are exrtremely slow at
updating when new version of jdk comes out so you just have to hope that
no one exploits the security problems in old one before they get around

Arduino software (from http://www.arduino.cc/ ) needs the Sun Java

Assuming one wants to install the Sun Java stuff for some reason,
is it advisable to use the rpm from sun.com or to rebuild the .nosrc.rpm
I seem to remember that the .nosrc.rpm was considered superior from a
good-integration-in-Fedora point of view (paths, alternatives,...).
Am I wrong?
Depending on the use case I could even recommend to just install it to
opt without rpm and update alternatives to point in there by hand. This
way you can update new version right away when Sun releases it. (Use
case being that you don't use any packages which depend on java-rpm)
