What's the best way to upgrade java??



I am new to Debian, and I'm wondering what is the
*best* 
way for me to upgrade my java to version 6?
Is it ok to get the relavent pkgs from testing (lenny)
and 
install them from a folder using "dpkg -i *.deb"?
I am used to rpm based Linux (Mandriva), and I could 
install rpms with a similar method using "urpmi *.rpm"

Would it be safe to add a lenny repository to
Synaptic, 
and upgrade only my java pkgs??

I have the testing version of "java-package" (0.37)
installed, 
so yet another method would be to create the updated 
java using the java6 from sun (make-jpkg).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

TIA, best regards. 

PS. I am running Dreamlinux, which is Debian Etch4
based.
My kernel version is "2.6.18.1-kanotix-1".
