It depends on a Debian specific meta package java6-runtime, which by default 
resolves to openjdk-6. But everybody is free to install sun-java instead, 
which also provides java6-runtime.
If there would be a hard dependency on sun-java, then hadoop could not enter 
the main repository of Debian, since sun-java is not free.
