As far as I know, puppetserver ought to run as well on the Oracle JRE as it
does on OpenJDK JRE, as even if we weren't talking about *Java*, the two
products are very closely related. Thus, yours appears to be a packaging
problem, not a functional problem. I take it that Ubuntu does not allow
you to install multiple Java packages, else you wouldn't be asking, but
some other distros do cleanly support having multiple versions installed
simultaneously. Anyway, since it's a packaging problem, one approach to
solving it would be to repackage puppetserver to change its dependencies.
But you need any of that only on the master (as far as Puppet is
concerned), for the Puppet agent does not depend on Java. And perhaps that
in itself resolves the problem, for what prevents you from using OpenJDK on
the master, and whatever Puppet-managed Java you like everywhere else?
