Hi Mario!

A useful information for you: Java is platform-independent which means 
that code written in Java can be runned under all (actual) Operating 
Systems. So this makes clear that is a quite strange idea to launch java 
code under wine, when linux supports java nativly.

This seems quite obvious, don´t it? If you want to go biking, you have 
to buy a bike first. This means that if you want to run a Java-programm, 
you have to install Java. The question remaing is: which one?!?
If you just want to be able to run java programs, then you should 
download a JRE (=Java Runtime Environment) which includes all necessary 
things to be able to launch java code - and install it under each 
Operating system where you want to use java.
If you want to develop under other operating system (in your example 
linux) , then you should download and install the appropriate SDK 
(=Software Development Kit), which includes the JRE.
Both, JRE and SDK for Java, can be downloaded on the site of sun 

I hope this answered your question.
