JavaPackage is a utility for building Java 2 related Debian packages This package provides the capability to create a debian package from a Java(TM) 2 distribution by just running

 make-jpkg <filename>.

This program works currently with the latest Java 2 ["REs"] and ["SDKs"] (1.3, 1.4 and 1.5) Standard Edition, from ?SunJava and ?BlackDownJava -Linux.

It will make a .["deb"] out of Sun's .bin .


[apt-get] install java-package

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

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

apt-get install sun-j2re1.5debian
