Many thanks. :-)
So I hope you do not mind if I (mis)use my sponsors power to draw you
into using (and liking) it. ;-)  Making it easy and declarative was
the main point behind this effort - I hope it will become official in
the not so distant future.

OK, that's fine for me.  The good thing about sponsoring is that you
can always learn from people who recently have read the docs. ;-)

Whatever I technically do it creates working and lintian clean packages
the way as I was copying some example in the beginning.  Since I like
the ${java:Depends} solution I leave my packages as they are but in
your case it is fine for sure.

So I just uploaded the package and hope it will pass new soon.

Thanks for your preparation
