How to really install Sun Java on Fedora Core

I have run into the following link:

http://www.fedorafaq.org/#java

which details the “real” way to install Sun Java on Fedora core… Though I have found the wonderful /usr/sbin/update-alternatives tool, (which allows you to specify your default applications):

/usr/sbin/update-alternatives --config java

I continue to be frustrated by the slowness of yum and rpm for package management…
