This link mentions about diablo-jre.

What's that and why should I use it instead of other implementation?

The Diablo JRE is the prebuilt Java Runtime Environment (commonly know as "Java Software" for your computer). Sun/Oracle doesn't make a version that is natively compatible with FreeBSD, but has licensed the FreeBSD Foundation to distribute a copy (normally you can not distribute a prebuilt copy of the JRE unless Sun/Oracle made it).

You can get the various versions from the FreeBSD Foundation Java Website.

They make installing the JRE or JDK quick and simple. Diablo is a reference to Beastie (which can't be cobranded for licensing reasons).
