You're a little premature.  Only part of JDK (or JRE) has been released
as Free Software so far, though Sun s announced that all of JDK will
be becomes Free Software (modulo complications with libraries that
have other copyright holders.)

There is gcj and other Free Java re-implementations that use the
ClassPath libraries.  Fedora ships that and many Java applications
built with those tools; I don't know if Debian does.
