I've tested default installation and eclipse works.

# ls -Z /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_05/jre/lib/i386/client/libjvm.so 
-rwxr-xr-x  root root system_u:object_r:textrel_shlib_t

Try to relabel your filesystem:

# restorecon -Rv /usr/local/java/


# touch /.autorelabel; reboot
Comment 3 Josef Kubin 2008-03-09 11:52:09 EDT
Even if I move java tree to /usr/local it is still labeled correctly

# restorecon -Rv /usr/local/java/

# ls -Z /usr/local/java/jdk1.6.0_05/jre/lib/i386/client/libjvm.so 
-rwxr-xr-x  root root system_u:object_r:textrel_shlib_t

# rpm -q selinux-policy

In case that your problem isn't solved by above steps please reopen bug.
