From communication with Java maint and OpenJDK teams - "apache-jasper  will need to  requires java-1.7.0-devel directly" due to concerns over OpenJDK 1.7 providing java-devel.

I have a scratch-build: https://brewweb.devel.redhat.com/taskinfo?taskID=10388829 which has fixed the problem using the new buildroot and setting the BR and R to use java-devel.
