NAME

       jh_installlibs - installs jar files in usr/share/java of a package

SYNOPSIS

       jh_installlibs [debhelper options]

       jh_installlibs [debhelper options] [-ppackage] [--classpath=cp] [jar [...]]

DESCRIPTION

       For library packages Debian Java policy currently requires that the libraries be installed
       to /usr/share/java in a versioned format and with an unversioned symlink. jh_installlibs
       will take a jar and correctly install it.

       As with debhelper programs, this can either take a jar as a parameter, or read a list of
       jars from a file in the Debian directory. It also follows the -p, -i and -a semantics of
       debhelper for selecting which packages to install the jar to. When operating on a package,
       jh_installlibs will read the list of library jars from debian/package.jlibs or
       debian/jlibs.

       The jlibs file is a list of jars to install, one per line, and works exactly the same as
       listing them on the command line. Each jar is installed to debian/package/usr/share/java/
       in the appropriate versioned and unversioned forms.

       If the jars built by upstream already contain the version number, this will be stripped
       before installing. jh_installlibs will also try to strip the upstream version number of
       any ds or dfsg suffix. Other version-mangling options or explicit version numbers can also
       be provided.

FILES

       debian/package.jlibs, debian/jlibs
           The jlibs file is a list of jars to install, one per line, and works exactly the same
           as listing them on the command line. Each jar is installed to
           debian/package/usr/share/java/ in the appropriate versioned and unversioned forms.

           Note that unlike most other debhelper commands, jh_installlibs will use debian/jlibs
           as a fallback configuration file for all packages that it acts on.  Other debhelper
           commands usually only apply this fallback to the "main package".

OPTIONS

       --no-mangle
           Do not try to sanitize the upstream version number.

       --upstream-version=version
           Use version as the upstream version.  This option implies --no-mangle

       --version-strip=regex
           Use regex instead of the built-in rules for sanitizing the upstream version number.

           This option is ignored when --no-mangle is passed (or implied by another option).

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

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