NAME

       jh_generateorbitdir - Creates and populates an orbit dir used by pde-build for third-party
       jar files.

SYNOPSIS

       jh_generateorbitdir [debhelperĀ options] [--orbit-dir=dir] [orbit-depĀ [...]]

DESCRIPTION

       jh_generateorbitdir is a javahelper program that handles creation of an orbit dependency
       dir. This directory has to be populated with non-eclipse jar files. However, eclipse
       refers to these jars by their "symbolic name". jh_generateorbitdir can extract this name
       from the jar's manifest (provided it has the OSGi metadata) and create a symlink to it.

       jh_generateorbitdir will replace regular files with symlinks if they are present in the
       orbit dir and clash with the name of one of the orbit jars. If an orbit jar name clashes
       with a symlink in the orbit dir, then jh_generateorbitdir will assume that the given jar
       has already been symlinked correctly. In this case the jar file is still recorded in the
       cache (see below).

       jh_generateorbitdir will also check the default installation for jar files on Debian
       systems (at the time of writing /usr/share/java), if it cannot find the jar in the current
       dir.

       Jar files replaced by jh_generateorbitdir will be recorded so that jh_installeclipse can
       replace with symlinks them post install.

FILES

       debian/eclipse.orbitdeps
           List of orbit dependencies - one per line. This can be used as an alternative to
           passing it per command line.

OPTIONS

       --orbit-dir=dir
           Specifies the directory from where the orbit-dir is or should be created. Defauls to
           "debian/.eclipse_build/orbitdeps".

EXAMPLE

         jh_generateorbitdir --orbit-dir orbit asm3 oro

       Will generate a folder called orbit with two symlinks based on asm3 and oro's symbolic
       name.
