I don't know if you saw this:

I'm seeking some more help from java people at sun one last time
before we might have to just say that an incomplete solution might be
the only policy-compliant [1] solution for a non-free package. Please,
if anyone knows of a better way let us know (the joys of non-free
packages: features can be undocumented and a mystery!). The best fix
is to use open-jdk, which I've been suggesting to users.
