I have a hard time believing that this guy is a Java developer if he expects everything to be handed to him on a silver platter. Seriously. This guy was trying to do Java development, not scan a photo of his grand kid or check his e-mail. Ubuntu has to make decisions based on what the most likely scenario is for their target audience. Ubuntu is trying to be friendly to people who just want a computer that works so they can browse the web, e-mail, write a document, etc. Cluttering Synaptic with a bunch of dev tools will not help that goal.
Ubuntu has made the right decisions regarding what to include in their out of the box install. If you'r a developer on Ubuntu be thankful that it's just a few trivial configuration changes to get yourself setup.
