Package: java-package
Version: 0.62
Followup-For: Bug #876426

Dear Maintainer,

Oracle has changed the file name pattern so make-jpkg doesn't recognise
it. Renaming it makes make-jpkg create a DEB file as expected (so a
corresponding change to the programs pattern matching function is in

   $ mv jdk-9_linux-x64_bin.tar.gz jdk-9-linux-x64.tar.gz
   $ make-jpkg jdk-9-linux-x64.tar.gz

Upon installing the resulting package:

   # dpkg -i oracle-java9-jdk_9_amd64.deb

JDK 9 is installed into /usr/lib/jvm/oracle-java9-jdk-amd64, however,
not all the symlinks are not updated correctly. e.g. does /usr/bin/java
not point to the newly installed JDK9 (but javac is).

 $ ls -l /etc/alternatives/java*
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 48 Aug  3 06:35 /etc/alternatives/java ->
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 54 Aug  3 06:35 /etc/alternatives/java.1.gz ->
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 45 Sep 25 09:22 /etc/alternatives/javac ->
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 47 Sep 25 09:22 /etc/alternatives/javadoc ->
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 45 Sep 25 09:22 /etc/alternatives/javah ->
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 45 Sep 25 09:22 /etc/alternatives/javap ->
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 50 Aug  3 06:35 /etc/alternatives/javaws ->
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 56 Aug  3 06:35 /etc/alternatives/javaws.1.gz ->

Both java and javaws does exist in the installed JDK 9 package, so
there's something else amiss:

 $ ls /usr/lib/jvm/oracle-java9-jdk-amd64/bin/java
 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 6.0K Sep 25 09:08
