Default Java in Debian 5

On the web page at
is stated:

"2.7. Java now in Debian

The OpenJDK Java Runtime Environment openjdk-6-jre and Development Kit
openjdk-6-jdk, needed for executing Java GUI and Webstart programs or
building such programs, are now in Debian. The packages are built using
the IcedTea build support and patches from the IcedTea project."

Does this now mean that we cannot instal and run Debian 5 without Java,
or that Debian cannot fully run without Java, in the same way that some
versions of MS Windows cannot fully run without Internet Explorer?
