Both of those packages (jdk and jre) are already in the community repo. In general you shouldn't upload packages to the AUR that already exist in core/extra/community (I think developmental versions and other variations are permitted as long as they're properly named).

Could you explain why you've created such a package? If you're trying to achieve something specific then perhaps someone on the list can offer some suggestions of how to proceed.
