Cannot be packaged due to Oracle removing the Sun Distributor License Agreement.

Can perhaps go into Third Party but thats about it (Cannot actually download a fixed tarball either.)

So the same limitation probably also applies to the Oracle JDK, right? If it could go to Third Party it would be awesome, if not than it's really unfortunate news for me, because I'm doing Android development and Android Studio on OpenJDK sucks ass hardcore.

Can't argue with that.. Really can't.

You can install your Oracle JDK locally anytime. That's what I did.

I'm in the same boat @skmlcd

On Ubuntu I've always added a ppa to my system that auto downloads and installs Java 8. If you extract the .deb file all it is, is a set of bash scripts that have you accept the license and then creates the directors needed and downaloads java and extracts it. The Scripts would need to be modified for Solus. Hope this helps with packaging java in the third party repo.

That's not a supported convention in Solus. Package installation *must* be non-interactive, so license acceptance through this method isn't permitted. Also we don't allow packages to do these things in a postinstall, its a huge hack.
