I use this with Debian Wheezy and Jessie

|sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

It does everything, including updating the browser, correcting the links in alternatives and setting paths. It's blooming magic. I too have an app that refuses to run with OpenJDK. Ric http://www.webupd8.org/2012/01/install-oracle-java-jdk-7-in-ubuntu-via.html

But it is not for Debian!, even if it works it doesn't mean that it is a good idea to inlcude ubuntu ppa-s into debian.

the official way seem to be java-package: https://wiki.debian.org/JavaPackage

I personally stick to rraptor: https://github.com/rraptorr/oracle-java7
