I also have to use the proprietary JDK from time to time to test my
software. However I think Debian is about free software and everything
we do should reflect this and thus OpenJDK was made the default JDK/JRE.

I also don't see the difficulties in using

        sudo update-alternatives --config java


after the installation of the Oracle JDK and to change the default to
the preferred one. That would have taken less time than to file this bug
report.

Markus
