JavaPackage is a utility for packaging a non-free Java™ 2 Standard Edition (J2SE) Java™ Runtime Environment (["JRE"]) or Java™ Development Kit (["JDK"]) as a Debian package. JavaPackage provides the capability to create a Debian package from a Java™ 2 distribution simply by executing

 fakeroot make-jpkg <filename>.

This program works currently with ["JRE"]s and ["JDK"]s from ?SunJava (1.3 JRE, 1.4 and 1.5), ["IBMJava"] (1.3, 1.4 and 1.5 beta) and ?BlackDownJava (1.3 and 1.4). It also works with the API Javadoc from Sun (1.3, 1.4 and 1.5).

It will make a .["deb"] out of .bin files from Sun or Blackdown and .tar.gz files from IBM, as well as the .zip files for Sun's API Javadoc.

Process

[apt-get] install java-package (see ?AptGet ),

fakeroot make-jpkg jre-1_5_0-linux-i586.bin

["dpkg"] -i sun-j2re1.5_1.5.0+final_i386.deb
