This is really a unix shell question. :-)
It sounds like you haven't added /usr/local/java/bin to your current environment.
1) PATH=/usr/local/java/bin:$PATH; export PATH
(and add this line to your .bashrc file)
2) ln -s /usr/local/java/bin/java /usr/local/bin
(and repeat for javac and any other java executables you want).
3) source FULL_PATH_TO_THE_FILE/java-rmi.cgi
(and add this to your .bashrc file)
