  2.5. Main, contrib or non-free


  If your binary package can run only with non-free virtual machines
  (the only free Java virtual machine seems to be kaffe - and the one
  included in libgcj), it cannot go to main. If your package itself is
  free, it must go to contrib.

There are many other free JVMs now: ORP, KissMe, etc... The Classpath
page at GNU references them:
