Thank you for the rebuild Matthias. I see some new packages since the
last rebuild in April [1]. I'm surprised to see Ant in the list, the
error doesn't seem related to OpenJDK 8. Also I'm a bit puzzled by the
errors on mina2, modello and modello1.4, I have never been able to
reproduce them with pbuilder but it seems they are still there.

What about providing only the JDK in Jessie without the Java plugin?
Currently the target audience for Java 8 are the developers. Oracle is
still distributing Java 7 on its java.com website aimed at the end
users. It would be less critical to provide timely security updates for
a JDK used for development purpose than fixing a JRE executing applets
on the web.
