Try the following:

# first unpack the jre into /usr/local
cd /usr/local
tar -zxvf jre118_green.tar.gz

# tell your path to look in /usr/local/jre/bin for the jre executables
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/jre/bin

# tell the jre where to find its own runtime class
# and to also look for classes in the current directory
export CLASSPATH=/usr/local/jre/lib/rt.jar:.

change directory to wherever Blink.class is and then

jre Blink

This works for me.
