(hopefully this question isn't too open-ended)

What is the proper way to update Java installed via a tarball? (i.e. not a yum or rpm install) More specifically, I'm concerned about applications that link to a specific java file location that is probably going to change in an update.

Each system has multiple versions of java installed - I'm not too worried about the ones installed and updated via yum; it's the versions that were manually installed via the tarball that are mostly likely to break something in an update.

Those applications should point to a link, and you make sure the link points to the correct installation of Java.
