How to install Java so I can run some Paypal Java command line?

Hi,

I'm reading this page by Paypal to make the Paypal buttons more secure:
https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/paypal-payments-standard/integration-guide/encryptedwebpayments/#id08A3I0P017Q

by running this command line in Java:
java ButtonEncryption CertFile PKCS12File PPCertFile Password InputFile OutputFile

but I don't have the java command installed.

It's hosted by a VPS server on Godaddy using WHM/cPanel. I'm trying to find out the best way to install Java so I can run that command line.

It's Centos 5.9.

I read this:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5104817/how-to-install-java-sdk-on-centos

But this page says to install Tomcat:
http://www.jangro.com/how-to-install-java-on-whm-and-cpanel/

I have limited knowledge of Java (learning it though). Should I install Tomcat via WHM EasyApache? If so, I have this option to install "Mod Ruid2" (see attachment snapshot) in WHM EasyApache.

Or should I use the suggestion by the stackoverflow answer and use yum?

Thank you.

Whenever you install something in Linux, and have the option of using the default package manager, go that route.

From what I can tell though, it looks as if you can run that particular command on any machine that supports Java, and then just FTP the resulting file across.

That being said - the Java installation required for this does not require Tomcat as far as I can tell.  I'd prefer to just use YUM if I can, that way you don't end up getting lots of other installs that you do not need.
