Package: maven
Version: 3.0.5-2
Severity: minor

Dear Java Maintainer,

I noticed that the maven package in jessie depends on 
{default-jre|java5-runtime}[-headless]. Which results in openjdk-7-jre being
pulled in even if an alternative JRE/JDK is installed. In my case the JDK 
installed is oracle-java7-jdk (using make-jpkg from java-package).

The ant package (also in jessie) doesn't exhibit this problem because it
also depends on java7-runtime-headless (which is provided by 

Although both will still install openjdk if oracle-java8-{jdk,jre} is

My suggestion would be to have both maven and ant depends on the virtual
package java-runtime-headless, since this is provided by all JREs and JDKs
including the once created by make-jpkg.
