The only way to install Sun Java is by enabling its partner software source (under the other tab). Without enabling it, there's no Sun Java in Ubuntu Software Centre.
Very good info there JL. I tried to run online zip service ezyzip which apparently relies on Sun Java. It doesn't seem to accept OpenJDK. After I managed to install Sun Java-6 packages from the Canonical Partner Repository into Ubuntu 10.04, I run the online service again and it works.

I'll add another tip or the steps needed to install Sun Java-6 in the system sometime next week when the main site has been upgraded to Drupal 6 (We're going to see the new TSA theme!).
