I don't know about java-package, as I have not used it many years.
However, you can download the .tar.gz and just unpack it (I would think
/opt is a good choice of target location).  Or you can download the .rpm
and use alien to turn it into a .deb.

Incidentally, it has been a long time since I encountered any Java that
would run on the Oracle JVM but not on OpenJDK.  Are you sure you need
to even bother with the Oracle JVM?
