> As it is well known the recommended jre for Cassandra is sun java 1.6 but at this point
that package no longer in the debian or ubuntu apt repos. In order to run Cassandra with the
sun java 1.6 jre it must be installed manually with out the repos. Because of this when you
install cassandra via the apache or datastax apt repos it must also install openjdk-6-jre
even though sun java 1.6 jre is already installed.
> I would suggest that the java apt dependencies be removed from the Depends field in package
configuration and move to either the Recommends or Suggests field so that way openjdk is not
being downloaded when not necessary and possibly interfering with a be pre-installed jre
