Well, one method (and this isn't official AFAIK) is to run "alternatives
--config java" or "alternatives --config javac" and that should give you
a starting point for figuring out the list of JAVA_HOME paths for
packages installed that are blessed by JPackage (or was it Fedora? since
I'm not sure where alternatives support was introduced).
