Dear Maintainer,
links to javaws and itweb-settings are still wrong (at least in
amd64), please set to /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/.
Greetings,

Yeah, this is a real problem, upgrading from icedtea 6 to 7 leaves
itweb-settings, itweb-settings.1.gz, and javaws all pointing at
/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk* ... which is wrong.

Even running update-alternatives doesn't help, it offers the wrong
possibilities, this really needs to be fixed before the next release:

root@ruth:~# update-alternatives --all
There is only one alternative in link group aptitude (providing /usr/bin/aptitude): /usr/bin/aptitude-curses
Nothing to configure.

There is only one alternative in link group awk (providing /usr/bin/awk): /usr/bin/mawk
Nothing to configure.

There is only one alternative in link group builtins.7.gz (providing /usr/share/man/man7/builtins.7.gz): /usr/share/man/man7/bash-builtins.7.gz
Nothing to configure.

There is only one alternative in link group cpp (providing /lib/cpp): /usr/bin/cpp
Nothing to configure.

There is only one alternative in link group editor (providing /usr/bin/editor): /usr/bin/nvi
Nothing to configure.

There is only one alternative in link group ex (providing /usr/bin/ex): /usr/bin/nex
Nothing to configure.

There is only one alternative in link group from (providing /usr/bin/from): /usr/bin/bsd-from
Nothing to configure.

There is only one alternative in link group gnome-www-browser (providing /usr/bin/gnome-www-browser): /usr/bin/iceweasel
Nothing to configure.

There is only one alternative in link group itweb-settings (providing /usr/bin/itweb-settings): /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/itweb-settings
Nothing to configure.

There is only one alternative in link group java (providing /usr/bin/java): /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java
Nothing to configure.

There are 2 choices for the alternative javaws (providing /usr/bin/javaws).

  Selection    Path                                               Priority   Status
------------------------------------------------------------
* 0            /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-amd64//jre/bin/javaws   1061      auto mode
  1            /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-amd64//jre/bin/javaws   1061      manual mode
  2            /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/javaws    1061      manual mode

Press enter to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number: 


ugh.
