While it is a shame that JAI is in non-free we have some even more urgent
problem which results from the fact that it is not maintained upstream
any more:  It only builds with OpenJDK 6 -> see

It seems the best idea would be to find some (free) replacament for JAI
(but I personally have no idea to approach this since I'm not a Java

Kind regards
