Sun (Oracle) JRE/JDK to be removed from Ubuntu

Hi guys

Probably most of you have already heard the news (its been quite a bit
of buzz on this lately).

The Sun (Oracle) version of Java will be removed from Ubuntu (from the
partner repositories), and during your next system update, it will
_remove_ these packages, which means DHIS 2 will stop working.

The simplest solution to fixing this, is to install the openjdk
instead (available since 10.4 at least), it should work fine, but
there might be some performance issues for now.

The other solution is to get the binaries directly from
http://java.sun.com and install them locally, but then you are
responsible for updating the version yourself.

Thanks for the update. I see the ppa's are beginning to appear so
that might also be an option. So far so good with the openjdk.
