Hello!

I am French and very new to your Forum (I started with aptosid yesterday night on 3 different "old" PCs).

As it's seems impossible to get Java runtime anymore, how to get OpenJDK to fit correctly with aptosid?

Thanks a lot by advance!

# apt-get update
# apt-get install openjdk-7-jre

How good is the OpenJDK compared to the closed Oracle JRE?

I could never get Java to work properly in Iceweasel until I installed the proprietary sun-java6.
I have heard that Debian is dropping it from repos, hope they replace it with some free alternative that works.

Sun JRE is being dropped because Oracle now no longer allows redistribution and the only way to get the proprietary JRE is to go to Oracle's site and download a tarball.

Openjdk is the option that's being pushed, and the community should be reporting bugs so that they can be fixed and that the goal is to have openJDK work as well as the proprietary JRE.

Exactly, that is why I have it installed and try to get it to work.

You could note what does not work in OpenJDK vs Oracle proprietary JRE and file a bug report.

For example java applets in the browser could behave differently with OpenJDK. If the applet behaves badly with OpenJDK that's deemed a bug
