apt source for Java


Hello,

Where can I get apt source for java
the following repo not working:

deb ftp://sunsite.dk/mirrors/java-linux/debian/ testing non-free

I used to get j2re 1.4 from there (I prefere to use official repos)
And now the repo is unavialable.

Does anybody knows other repository?

I know I can install official package but every time I have debian repository I prefere to use it in order to have full control over SW packages via apt-get

Download the official installer and install make-jpkg
# apt-get install make-jpkg

Then read
$ man make-jpkg

You can use make-jpkg to make a .deb out of the official installers.

I added "deb ftp://ftp.tux.org/java/debian/ unstable non-free" to my sources list.
Then I ran apt-get update, followed by apt-get install j2re1.4.
Works like a champ!
