Java runtime is not installed by the Fedora Distribution due to license
probs. You have to install it separately. But Fedora has some
preparation in place to support java installation. Just follow the
instructions in the text.

-  visit 
-  download the mentioned package
-  download jdk from sun
-  follow the jpackage instructions for installation

An easier way is:

install the java runtime provided by dag
(just the runtime, without devel tools / compiler)
