Oracle Java is removed due to new license model

The Java program language is used on many computers, both in research and teaching at KTH.
Oracle Java has gone from being free for universities to require paying to use it. KTH therefore decided to switch to equivalent but free versions of Java implementations, preferably OpenJDK.
