I’ve run into this issue as well. Java SE 6 is apparently no longer on Apple’s servers (I looked for it a week or two ago). Java 8 and octave currently don’t work very well with each other (lots of discussion on #octave and the octave-dev mailing list over the last few weeks). I just have accepted that I must forgo java for the moment and built octave with the -java variant.
