javatools 0.66 source package in Ubuntu


javatools (0.66) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Team upload.
  * jh_installlibs: Re-add glob-expansion in jlibs files, which were
    unintentionally lost in the "shell -> perl" rewrite of
  * jh_exec: Fix missing guard to skip directories that do not exist.
  * jh_installlibs: Avoid duplicated upstream version in file name
    like the original version of jh_installlibs did.
  * d/rules: Use dpkg's include file rather than parsing
    dpkg-parsechangelog output manually.

Binary packages built by this source

jarwrapper: Run executable Java .jar files

 Jarwrapper sets up binfmt-misc to run executable jar files
 using the installed java runtime.
 It also includes a /usr/share/jarwrapper/ script
 to convert Debian architecture names into java names to locate

java-propose-classpath: Helper script to suggest a classpath for jar files

 java-propose-classpath analyzes a set of jar files and the installed
 jars on the system to suggest a correct classpath for use with
 This package should not be in any build-depends since java-propose-classpath
 cannot be run automatically.

javahelper: Helper scripts for packaging Java programs

 Javahelper contains several scripts which help in packaging
 Java programs.
 jh_depends searches jars to find which packages they depend on,
 similar to dh_shlibdeps. It will also add depends on jarwrapper
 for packages with executable jars.
 jh_classpath will register the classpath dependencies for each
 jar so that they can be automatically loaded when that jar is
 used by other programs.
 jh_manifest updates the manifest in jar files according to
 a provided spec so that the resultant jar files will work with
 jarwrapper-enabled packages.
 jh_exec looks for symlinks to jars which should be executable
 and makes them executable
 jh_build builds java files to jars for you.
 jh_installlibs installs library jars into the correct locations
 jh_makepkg generates a template for a Debian Java package for you
 jh_installeclipse installs features/plugins built by pde-build.
 jh_setupenvironment prepares an out of source built for eclipse builds.
 jh_generateorbitdir creates and populates an orbit dir for eclipse
 jh_compilefeatures compiles eclipse features based on feature ids.
 /usr/share/javahelper/ provides a selection of useful
 variables such as various JVM paths and the JVM name for the architecture
 /usr/share/javahelper/ converts Debian architecture
 names into java names to locate in non-make build systems
 javahelper provides CDBS and dh macros so that it can be used with those
 package build systems.
 Note that some of the eclipse helpers depends on packages not pulled
 by default (like with devscripts). You can find these scripts in
