If that may help, I wrote this small Perl script that takes care of
renaming RPM files that don't have the expected names (like Sun JDK):

---[begin: pkg-rename.pl]---
#!/usr/bin/perl
use strict;
use File::Spec;
use RPM::Perlonly;  # pure Perl clone of RPM::Info

die "usage: $0 <rpms directory>\n",
    "  check the rpms located in the directory given in argument\n",
    "  and rename them correctly if necessary\n"
  unless @ARGV and @ARGV==1;

my($rpms_dir) = @ARGV;

# check that the given arguments exist
-d $rpms_dir  or die "No such directory: $rpms_dir\n";

opendir(DIR, $rpms_dir) or die "can't read directory '$rpms_dir': $!";
my @dir = grep /\.rpm$/, readdir(DIR);
closedir(DIR);

for my $file (@dir) {
    my $path = File::Spec->catfile($rpms_dir, $file);
    tie my %header, "RPM::Perlonly", $path or next;
    my $new_name = sprintf "%s-%s-%s.%s.rpm", @header{qw(NAME VERSION RELEASE
ARCH)};
    if($file ne $new_name) {
        print "  $file --> $new_name\n";
        rename($path, File::Spec->catfile($rpms_dir, $new_name))
          or warn "can't rename '$file' to '$new_name': $!";
    }
    untie %header;
}
---[end]---
