GeoServer as well needs Sun version.

In the GeoServer install script I first had it install sun-jdk version
6 and then forced JAVA_HOME in the launch scripts for good measure
since, for some reason, the image comes with OpenJDK installed and
as the default java runtime.

If also deegree is happy with it we can probably have a separate script
that installs java instead of repeating it all over the place.

Makes sense, not sure where that can be done thought. I think there
is a file in /etc where global var can be set but I don't remember its name
