Bug#701791: java-common: update default-java when setting new alternantive

Package: java-common
Version: 0.48
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
Fro informaion :
 - I have on my system all java alternatives (openjdk (6,7) and oracle java
 - I'm generating deb package for oracle jdk with make-jpkg script to have the
most debian compliant installation and simplify upgrade.

When I'm using update-java-alternatives, it works well for commands but, it
would more usefull if it change also the directory link java-default to the
selected java alternative.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
All command links are mostly good (missing jvisualvm for oracle alternatives),
but the directory link "java-default" (/usr/lib/jvm) is not updated (pointing
all the time to openjdk 7).

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
Update all commands and the "java-default" directory link...

Please consider that issue because some software (like netbeans 7.3) are using
it and I would provide the right JVM to it in changing java alternative and not
by editing software configuration files.

Best regards
