Yes, it is my default. The problem is that your dependencies do not take into 
account which java is user's default, they just say "any one of these will 
work", and that is not true: if user has one of them installed and it does not 
correspond to the user's default java, the needed jre will not be installed 
and the package executable will fail.

Yes, that is the solution to my particular problem, but it is not a solution 
to the bug.

I understand. Is there a way to check which java will the user use and install 
the really needed dependency?

The point is: if a user has Sun's java installed, by any reason, and later 
installs openjdk-6-jre-headless by any other reason, for example by installing 
OpenOffice.org which depends on it, then when the user is to install josm the 
dependencies system thinks that all dependencies are fullfilled and they are 
not, since openjdk-6-jre-headless provides a high priority java binary which 
needs openjdk-6-jre (not installed) to execute josm.

Hope this helps
