The difficulty is the policy that applies to backported packages. A
package that is backported from the Debian release n+1 to the release n
has to remain upgradable when the system is upgraded. For this to happen
the version backported must rank lower than the version in the next
release. That's why there are weird suffixes appended to the versions of
the backported packages (1.2.3-1~bpo9+1 is lower than 1.2.3-1).

Currently Debian Buster has openjdk-11/11.0.3+1-1, so it isn't possible
to upload the version 11.0.3+7-1~bpo9+1 to stretch-backports. The only
solutions is to either upgrade openjdk-11 in testing to a version higher
than 11.0.3+7, or patch the existing version. Since testing is currently
frozen and difficult to update until the release of Buster, it leaves
only the patch solution.
