According to the documentation the currently support java version is Sun 1.6

The Sun java version of course has changed to Oracle. To install the Oracle version is problematic and the standalone version of crowd doesn't come with it's own jre. Will the openjdk cause problems with Crowd? Should the documentation be updated? What is recommended for the a problem free install?

Since talking to atlassian support the documentation has been updated to say that they require the oracle jdk. I have also worked out an unattended install of the Oracle JDK so all is good.

Hi, what issues do you have installing the Oracle JDK? You simply need to download it and set it to your environment variable. There's not much required in terms of installation.

I'd suggest sticking with the Oracle JDK since it has been tested and is supported. If there are problems, support can help you this way.
