Read the "Build Instructions" at jpackage.org.  Among other items
besides reading the instructions is to install the fedora-rpmdevltools
package from Extras and download the .bin  file from Sun.

I wrote a quick and painless guide to install JPackage's Fedora-sanctioned Sun Java at http://www.fedorasolved.com/viewtopic.php?t=204 . Let me know if anything is confusing.
Very similar to mine :-)

The rpath problem you allude to at the bottom of the guide happened if
you had an old version of fedora-rpmdevtools installed, which was fixed
before FC5 came out and hence that's why you've not seen it on FC5.


Both guides look really good. I tried the
java-1.5.0-sun- as well and it works good.

However I didn't like this kind of packaging, because it puts java files
in different locations than jdk-1_5_0_06-linux-i586.rpm does.
This is true, and on purpose; part of the reason for JPackage's nosrc.rpm is for more standard organization of files or something like that.
