In general the order of directories in your PATH environment variable ("echo $PATH" to view it) determines which java is run when you type jav. So change that order and you should be set.

If that isn't possible a simple
 
alias jav='/path/to/the/right/jav'

in your ~/.bashrc will also do the trick.
