I think making the +java default might may have been a mistake, as this also prevents the build bots from successfully building any octave packages. The build bots apparently don’t have access to JRE. I ran into two of those failures yesterday, when updating octave-netcdf and octave-spline. I’ve built octave with -java, and thus the packages build normally on my local machines.
