Includes Java in a Python Lambda package

I have a Python lambda in AWS that has as dependency tabulas, which requires Java 8+. Is there any way to includes Java in my package? I’m using Serverless framework to package my function and dependencies.

{
  "errorMessage": "`java` command is not found from this Python process.Please ensure Java is installed and PATH is set for `java`",
  "errorType": "JavaNotFoundError",
  "stackTrace": [
    "  File \"/var/task/handler.py\", line 18, in parse\n    data = get_data(tmp_file_path)\n",
    "  File \"/var/task/handler.py\", line 31, in get_data\n    convert_into(file_path, file, output_format='csv', pages='all')\n",
    "  File \"/var/task/tabula/io.py\", line 562, in convert_into\n    _run(java_options, kwargs, path)\n",
    "  File \"/var/task/tabula/io.py\", line 91, in _run\n    raise JavaNotFoundError(JAVA_NOT_FOUND_ERROR)\n"
  ]
}
