It's a license issue. Unlike most other distros, Debian strives to become a totally free operating system, as the term "free" is defined by the GNU philosophy. You are free to use some other distro if you like their policy on license issues better.

On the other hand, you can use some of the available workarounds to install Java SDK on your Debian system. The Blackdown version becomes available via apt-get if you add the following repository to /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb ftp://ftp.tux.org/java/debian/ sarge non-free
(This is for Sarge -- tweak it accordingly if you use Woody or Sid.)

To install Sun's version of Java, check out dastrike's guide:
http://serios.net/content/debian/java.php

EDIT:
Ooops, it seems that ftp.tux.org has repositories for sarge, sid, testing, and unstable so these will work but there's no repository for woody or stable.

Sorry, I'm not a developer myself so I may have misunderstood your question. Ftp.tux.org offers a deb package for Blackdown Java(TM) 2 SDK (j2sdk1.4) for easy installation via apt-get but apparently this is not what you're looking for.

Debian does have something called free-java-sdk in the official repository. You might want to check it out...
