Click, "Help"->"About Mozilla", then click on the Mozilla link at the top of the page. Press CTRL+F and type in "java" and press enter.

If I remember right it's a shell archive (a shell script that when run will produce the RPM after you accept the license agreement). To extract the RPM you would:

$ sh javafile.rpm.bin

Replace javafile.rpm.bin with whatever the real filename is.
