Debian's OOo package is *not* build with Java support since we would
need a non-free JDK for building which is not allowed for packages in
Debian main...

There is a *test* openoffice.org-java deb available at
which is supposed to be uploaded to Debian contrib someday to add the
Java features to OOo.
