Deb package asks for a java8-runtime-headless instead of openjdk-8-jre-headless


#1

(Github issue)

Why the .deb package asks for a java8-runtime-headless dependency instead of openjdk-8-jre-headless where you do not need to use ppa to use?
Avoid using ppa packages please change this
use openjdk-8-jre-headless as dependency instead of java8-runtime-headless that only exists in a ppa

Packages providing java8-runtime-headless

default-jre-headless
Standard Java or Java compatible Runtime (headless)
openjdk-8-jre-headless
OpenJDK Java runtime, using Hotspot JIT (headless)
https://packages.debian.org/stretch/java8-runtime-headless

why not use the package that is in the official debian repository and its derivatives? choosing a ppa is a serious mistake that should never happen!

I just use open jdk and it works fine too.


#3

Dependency of default-jre will be better, will not it?


#4

It would be better to just use packages from the official Debian repository, using ppa is not unreliable
