Bug Description

New OpenJDK version, same issue as https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openjdk-6/+bug/257857

The underlying problem is that there's no way to do something like compile a Java program or use jstack to debug a process without installing the full openjdk-7-jdk package, which pulls in over a hundred other packages for some large dependencies (GNOME, Mesa, sound themes, etc.) which should not be installed on a server.
