Well he has the propietory sun java on RHEL 5. ive found icedtea to be fine 
for my needs  

I suggest you read about the alternatives system 

the java you have is gcj.  which is fine for many things but feature lacking 
for some.  icedtea  is a version of Java 1.7 use it  make sure you have 
alternatives using the right java

alternatives --display java  

will show you what is available.
