Java 7 EOL was year ago. Openfire shouldn't support outdated Java. At least 4.0 branch. That said, it should be updated to only require Java 8. I know that Windows version works with Java 8. On Ubuntu tar.gz version (bundled with Java 8) works fine. Deb package should be updated to not require Java 7.

The ubuntu package still needs java-7:

dpkg: regarding /tmp/openfire_4.0.1_all.deb containing openfire, pre-dependency problem:
openfire pre-depends on openjdk-7-jre-headless | openjdk-7-jre | oracle-java7-jre
openjdk-7-jre-headless is not installed.
openjdk-7-jre is not installed.
oracle-java7-jre is not installed.
