Hey Hod ,
Thanks for the link, but i am still not able to configure it.Basically i use ubuntu on my laptop and it doesn't have a net connection.I got the sun jdk and jre setup files.I have installed them also, but as per the link i tried updating the default compiler but i don't get any option of sun java there.So any one who can help me wit step by step installation of this!

It sounds like you still need to install Sun's binaries. See the ubuntu wiki RestrictedFormats java (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RestrictedFormats#head-e2ebd70ede0e3eb2117ffbd618d2295dd1540dca) section for how to do this.
