In order to download, you will have to register with the IBM website and agree to the license online. 
The files available include: 
 - The Java Development Kit contains everything you need to compile,

I suggest installing files in the /usr/local directory. After downloading the files, run: 
mkdir /usr/local/ibm
mv ibm-jdk-l118-linux-x86.tgz /usr/local/ibm
You can now open the distribution package.  To do this, type: 
tar zxvf ibm-jdk-l118-linux-x86.tgz
Under the /usr/local/ibm directory, you now should see  the jdk118 directory. 
The above example shows JDK 1.1.8 for the Intel architecture.  Substitute the filenames as appropriate.
