If you have Ubuntu 12.04 open a terminal and

sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk <==== this package is the development kit

sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre <=== this package is the java runtime environment.

sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-doc <=== this package is the development documentation.

Take a look at Ubuntu-Packages.

http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=openjdk-7&searchon=names&suite=precise&section=all

Thanks
