The website link mikedt provided includes JRE packages in both .rpm and .tar.gz form. The tarball (.tar.Hz) can be installed on any Linux distro including Unbuntu. Just download the tarball and follow the installation instructions on the website.

You don't need to install IcedTea at all. In fact I would recommend against it.
