What does not

The installation


Manual installation of Java 8.

Due to the nature of Java, you can run this on a Unix-like or
Windows, provided you have an existing Java 8 installation. However
these instructions will be for Unix-like systems. You will also need
p7zip-full (available in Debian) along with unzip.

Download jdk-8u60-windows-i586.exe and place it into C:\.

$ cd ~/.wine/drive_c
$ 7z x jdk-8u60-windows-i586.exe

A file called should be created.

$ mkdir jdk
$ cd jdk
$ unzip ../

The installation cannot yet be run, unpack200 must be called on all
pack200ed JAR files. Using a POSIX compatible shell this is simple. This
will take awhile to complete. If you do not have unpack200, you can use
one from another Java installation on another system.

find -type f | grep '\.pack$' | while read __line;
  __outjar="$(dirname "$__line")/$(basename "$__line" .pack).jar"
  echo "$__line" -- "$__outjar";
  unpack200 "$__line" "$__outjar";

After it is complete, check that your installation works.

$ wine bin/java -version

You should see

fixme:heap:HeapSetInformation (nil) 1 (nil) 0 java version "1.8.0_60"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_60-b27) Java HotSpot(TM)
Client VM (build 25.60-b23, mixed mode)

This means that your installation works.

After this you can either:

Call via c:\jdk\bin\java (or relative paths, etc.)
c:\jdk\bin to your Windows PATH JAVA_HOME should not have to be set at
all, however if it complains about it then you can set it to c:\jdk\jre.
