    Open a terminal and try this:

    Code:
    rpm -qi java-1_6_0-sun
    It will tell you whether you have java installed or not, if not, as root install it using zypper:

    Code:
    zypper in java-1_6_0-sun
    You'll also want the browser plugin:

    Code:
    zypper in java-1_6_0-sun-plugin
    Zypper is an excellent cli tool for package and repository management.

    In openSUSE 11.2, java should install by default. Check with the rpm query command; e.g. here's my query; revealing the default java:

    Code:
    john@suse112:~> rpm -qa | grep java
    java-1_6_0-openjdk-plugin-1.6.0.0_b16-5.10.1.x86_64
    timezone-java-2009u-0.1.1.noarch
    java-1_6_0-openjdk-1.6.0.0_b16-5.10.1.x86_64
    So if you absolutely need to change to sun, you would uninstall openjdk, but if you simply just want java, you should already have it.

    Not to ask a stupid question, but how do you know you don't "have" Java? With Firefox, if you go to: java.com: Java + You and click on the "Do I have Java" link, what does it post back? Also, start a Terminal window and type:

    Code:
    ~> java -version
    Does it report anything back?
