jdk and jre in [community] are not updated as often as they should be
imo (currently out-of-date, again), and the only other option is
jre/jdk_beta, which are, well, beta!
also, my package installs both jdk and jre (in the same manner as
openjdk) so users don't download the same binary package twice (a la
jre/jdk_beta) if they are unaware..
