Hi Ole,

quoting from /usr/share/doc/javahelper/tutorial.txt.gz

"As of version 0.32, `jh_depends` also checks installed javadocs for
links to system installed javadocs. It will use this to populate the
${java:Recommends} variable, which can be used for the doc package."

So using ${java:Recommends} for your -doc package should work.
