Actually I was thinking about the JRE packages generated by
java-package. Currently these packages provide only java-runtime and
java2-runtime (plus the headless variations). I pushed a change to
provide also java<n>-runtime depending on the version packaged. But that
will not work with tomcat7, because the package doesn't provide
java6-runtime expected by tomcat7.

I'm not sure about the right solution. Either:

1. java-package generates JRE packages providing default-jre and
default-jre-headless (I'm not sure why it doesn't already)

2. java-package generates JRE packages providing java<n>-runtime for
every n between 2 and the version packaged.

3. Get the packages like tomcat7 to accept java7-runtime
