there are couple of options -

 Linux RPM   filesize: 20.5 MB  Instructions Verify Now
 
After installing Java, restart your browser and verify Java has been installed correctly.
 
 Linux     filesize: 32.8 MB  Instructions
 Linux x64 *     filesize: 31.4 MB  Instructions
 Linux x64 RPM *    filesize: 20.7 MB  Instructions

So which one to take, will it support to Suse 10 Z Mainframe system platform.

On most Linux distros, when you install software you do that via the distro's package manager and it's repositories, and not by downloading the software directly from the publisher of it, provided it is available in the repos. In SUSE you'd do that via YAST, Software, Software Management. Then when that has initialized enter java into the search box and you should get a list of software that has something to do with java. You can then select the tool you need (if you highlight something you'll get a more detailed info screen about that, so you will know what you are installing). Then when you have selected the tool or tools, click on "Accept" and it should get downloaded and installed.

So I need to download YAST on Suse 10 to get access of repositories. or it is already installed.

Yast is a part of SUSE and OpenSUSE and already there. With it you do the administration of the System and software installations and updates using a central tool.
