Looking at the package jmol , I noticed it doesn't depend on a Java runtime.
This means that if a user installs it on a system where Java has not
been installed previously, the program will not be able to run. Jmol-applet 
on the other hand, depends on a Java runtime and will ensure the necessary
dependencies are in place to run it.
(I also skimmed the Debian Policy for Java and it states that programs must
depend on the needed runtime )
I have attached a small patch which will add the runtime as a dependency for
the jmol binary.
