You need to ask the person who created the package.

You do not need both.  I recommend that you remove the 1.4.2 jre.

Get the versions of jre installed on your system by typing:

# rpm -qa | grep jre

Remove the one you do not want by typing:

# rpm -e <name of rpm-package from above>

Tip: Use your mouse to highlight the name of the package, right-click,
select copy,  right-click, and select paste to insert the data in the
line above.
