Download a JRE or SDK from
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp, the SDK is required by
some packages (like tomcat4).

Install java-package  -> 
apt-get install java-package fakeroot sun-j2sdk1.5debian

Now it's just as easy as building a kernel the-Debian-way -> 
fakeroot make-jpkg /path/to/self-extracting_java_file

Answer the questions, fill in your name & email and accept the
_NONFREE_ license, just wait for some Debian Magic to finish. If no
errors show up in your console, there should be a
sun-j2sdk1.5_1.5.0+update01_i386.deb laying around in your current
Just ->
 dpkg -i sun-j2sdk1.5_1.5.0+update01_i386.deb

Test if it works with ->
java -version

You're ready when the following appears->
java version "1.5.0_01"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_01-b08)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_01-b08, mixed mode, sharing)
