I hope it's not something based on Webstart? Because Webstart will no
longer be part of Java 11. So I guess at least some of us will have to
keep a copy of a JRE with javaws around for some time.
That is also the reason why the Java 8 support in the current java-package
shipped in Debian is kind of sufficient. Java 9 and 10 are only short
term releases and starting with Java 11 quite a few things will change,
and I think there is no real need for this repackaging of Oracle JREs
anymore.
