You have to take it up with Apple.  java, javac et al links were 'built' into the OS when Apple controlled Java on Mac OS X.  What you have now are ghosts from the past.  jjs has been added since Apple handed java maintenance over to Oracle.  What you have now are ghosts from the past.  Currently, each user has to manually (cd /usr/bin/ ;  ln -s $JAVA_HOME/bin/jjs jjs) .
