Devuan and Java 8

I would really like to install an open source version of JRE 8 on my Devuan box, but none are listed in apt-cache search.  What the recommended way achieve this?  Failing a working open source version of java 8, I will try the java repository from webupd8.org but would like to know if anyone else has tested this in Devuan.

Keep up the good work and thanks for taking the time to make Devuan a reality!

Re: Devuan and Java 8

After a bit of searching, a bit of nano, and bit of apt-get I now have openjdk-8-jre-headless.  Thanks Ralph!
