The issue is the init script of Tomcat , it uses
/usr/lib/jvm/default-java first if available. The same goes for Jetty.
Switching the default JRE will affect any application using
/usr/lib/jvm/default-java directly instead of /usr/bin/java. Also if I'm
not mistaken openjdk-6 could get autoremoved by APT and the alternative
then switched to openjdk-7.
So my suggestion would be to push an update of java-common first with a
NEWS file stating that we'll stop maintaining openjdk-6 in <n> months
and switch the default JRE. This will let enough time to the LTS users
to anticipate the change.
