NAME

       jh_linkjars - populate folders with symlinks to jar files

SYNOPSIS

       jh_linkjars [debhelperĀ options]

       jh_linkjars [debhelperĀ options] directory

DESCRIPTION

       If upstream ship convenience copies of third-party jar files which have been removed (see
       jh_repack(1)), but the build system refers to that directory, jh_linkjars can be used to
       populate the directory with symlinks to the packaged jars in /usr/share/java.

       It is called either with a directory on the command line or by specifying one target
       directory per line in the file debian/linkjars.

       jh_linkjars will scan all of the (installed) build-dependencies and create a symlink to
       every jar which is installed by those packages in the target directory.

       jh_linkjars can be called with -u to remove all the symlinks in the clean target.  This is
       done automatically by jh_clean(1).

FILES

       debian/linkjars
           List of directories to populate; one directory per line.

OPTIONS

       -t, --transitive
           Transitively link jar files (i.e. also include indirect dependencies in the target
           directory).

       -u, --unlink
           Remove all files/links in the target directories that jh_linkjars created (or would
           have created).

       Beyond the above, jh_linkjars also accepts the shared debhelper options documented in
       debhelper(7).

SEE ALSO

       debhelper(7)

       This program is a part of javahelper and uses debhelper as backend. There are also
       tutorials in /usr/share/doc/javahelper.
