Debian (and many others for that matter) can not distribute Sun's Java because of Sun's licenses, which, for start, do not meet the Debian Free Software Guidelines. This is a problem since Java is such a widely used Internet language. There is a concerted effort to rectify this problem with a free Java implementation.
