If you've questions about packaging Java Software for Debian, have a look at [[Java/Packaging]] and the [[JavaPackagingFAQ]].

== How get going with running and compiling Java programs in Debian real quick ==

In order to run java software you proboably need a jre package such as openjdk-6-jre. In order to compile java you need a jdk package such as openjdk-6-jdk. If you don't care which version of java is used, then default-jre and default-jdk are packages which exist on all platforms and give you something sensible.

sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk

You reach java as /usr/bin/java . This file is really a link to /etc/alternatives/java , which in turn is a link to your java installation folder that's located in /usr/lib/jvm . For instance, java may link via /etc/alternatives/java to /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/bin/java .

If you have more detailed questions, you may be interested in seeing [[http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-java-faq/]].

One particular reason that may lead your interest to read the tips above, is in case ant terminates for you with the error:

BUILD FAILED

(path)/build.xml:49: Unable to find a javac compiler;

com.sun.tools.javac.Main is not on the classpath.

Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK

=== Question ===

I am build-depending on sun-javaX-jdk. However, I can't get an automatic build in a clean environment working,
because sun-javaX-jdk does not install in a non-interactive environment, because it asks for license confirmation:
Line 5: Line 35:
 [apt-get] install j2re1.4  Unpacking sun-java6-jdk (from .../sun-java6-jdk_6-06-1_amd64.deb) ...
 sun-dlj-v1-1 license could not be presented
 try 'dpkg-reconfigure debconf' to select a frontend other than noninteractive
Line 8: Line 40:
it escapes with an error message : {{{
 update-alternatives: unable to make /usr/lib/mozilla-cvs/plugins/javaplugin_oji.so.dpkg-tmp
 a symlink to /etc/alternatives/javaplugin_oji-mozilla-cvs.so: No such file or directory
=== Answer ===

There are two possible answers:

==== Patch one and for all your pbuilder environment ====

{{{
 $ sudo pbuilder login --save-after-login
 # echo "sun-java5-jdk shared/accepted-sun-dlj-v1-1 boolean true" | debconf-set-selections
 # echo "sun-java6-jdk shared/accepted-sun-dlj-v1-1 boolean true" | debconf-set-selections
 # exit

What is wrong? ==== Add a hook to patch it on the fly ====

== Answer ==
Seems that this error message happen when the directory {{{
 /usr/lib/mozilla-cvs/plugins
}}}
does not exist. According to debian-user maillist this has been reported as a bug, but a workaround exist{{{
 mkdir -p /usr/lib/mozilla-cvs/plugins
}}}
will make the install procedure continue without problem.
 I use a way to do that "on the fly" because I think it's easier to
 manage if you have several debconf settings to manage. Just add to
 your .pbuilderrc:
Line 24: Line 60:
See also:
 * ["JavaScript"]
 {{{
 HOOKDIR=$HOME/debian/pbuilder/hooks
 }}}

 The create a file called i.e. "D50sun-java-licenses" in $HOOKDIR with
 the following content (it basically has to start with "D" and a two
 digit number for ordering):

 {{{
 #!/bin/sh
 debconf-set-selections <<EOF
 sun-java5-jdk shared/accepted-sun-dlj-v1-1 boolean true
 sun-java6-jdk shared/accepted-sun-dlj-v1-1 boolean true
 EOF
 }}}

 This accepts the licenses before packages are installed. I prefer this
 because I can deactivate certain settings easily (by commenting out
 sections or renaming hook files) and do not have to keep a full chroot
 for every possible debconf setting. Also, I tend to forget which exactly
 setting I did in which chroot.

As mentioned in {{{man pbuilder}}}, you need to make the hook script (D50sun-java-licenses) executable before pbuilder will load it.
