yes! one version back from latest upstream, but yes, it's there:

I would not like to include non-free packages so I would go about
installing openjdk6 as long as it is compatible with the nxjc packages.
Will check the hook in detail though
you don't need the hook if you don't use sun java. and installing
eclipse will install openjdk because that is one of its dependencies.
so just add eclipse to your packages list and you should be fine.
worth giving it a try. thanks
you can just email firstname.lastname@example.org
expressing your interest in
testing and asking for the status of the packaging effort. that will
get to the maintainer who is working on it.

so you think I can eliminate the interactive shell and manage
everything through hooks? So i would need a hook for java (already
mentioned) and another hook for nxjc right?
as i said, you don't need the hook for java if you use openjdk6. and
as for nxjc, so long as the maintainer has a .deb for you to try, you
just need to put it in config/chroot_local-packages/ ... no hooks
worst case scenario, you will need to do something else for nxjc
because the package isn't ready yet, but let's cross that bridge when
we get to it (i thought most java software was shipped in .zip archives
that you could just unzip and point CLASSPATH at; is this no longer the
case? *must* you always use gui installers?)
