On my system (as noted earlier):
% which java

so one would need /usr/bin in one's PATH, as in for root:
# echo $PATH

and, of course, java needs to have been installed.

The file in /usr/bin is really a symbolic link to a file in a different directory:
% ls -l /usr/bin/java
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     other         16 Mar  1  2009 /usr/bin/java -> ../java/bin/java*

and then:
% ls -lL /usr/bin/java
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     bin        64252 May 28  2008 /usr/bin/java*

Best wishes ... cheers, drl
