Admin notes: 

We took a .deb from and added it to our local repository for Ubuntu 14.04 rather than adding yet more PPAs to the image. The current debs come in versions for jdk8 and jdk7. As JDK8 isn't part of Ubuntu 14.04 we went with a JDK7 version. We also found that the latest packaged deb (version 0.15) seemed to have a broken dependency so we have 0.14.
