OP is asking how to install Java. Then he's asking about some xpi plugin for chromium.
It's obvious he's not asking about the Java Development Kit (JDK) like above poster suggests.
What he's asking for is the Java browser plugin.

Enter "about:plugins" in the address field to check installed plugins. You should see a Java plugin entry.
By default the IcedTea (OpenJDK) plugin is installed. Some web pages will complain if not the Sun Java plugin is found and say "Please install Java".

To remove IcedTea and install Sun Java plugin:

1) Enable partner repository:

2) Start synaptic and:
remove icedtea6-plugin package
install sun-java6-plugin

3) Restart browser

Chromium (aka Google Chrome)
I don't use this browser myself so you should google/search this forum for something like "chromium java plugin".
