Sure any improvement to the documentation is welcome but I would probably
present this more as a special Debian Jessie step that somethings everyone
have to check (or maybe add this to a troubleshoot section for the others).
As you want.

Thomas, you are right. Need to edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add this line:
deb jessie-backports main

After this openjdk-8-jdk will be installing without problem. But as I said,
for non-professional in linux - it is not so clearly :)

Maybe will reorganize InstallationViaAPT instruction?

For example, can be possible to rename "second step" to "third step", "first
step" to "second step" and
add new "first step" with something like this:
... first step - you should install or check availability of openjdk-8-jdk
package. For example in Debian  Jessie need to add  jessie-backports to
repository sources-list ...

If you agree, I can do it.
