       Maven - Creates a link in /usr/share/maven-repo for an existing jar.


       mh_linkjar [option]... [pom] [dest_jar] [link]...


       Create  symlinks for a jar installed by other means. The symlinks created include links to
       the jar in /usr/share/maven-repo, at the correct location for Maven.  It can  also  create
       additional links to the jar, usually located in /usr/share/java.


              [pom] is the location of the POM associated with the jar to install.

              GroupId, artifactId and version will be extracted from this file.

              [dest_jar] is the path of the installed jar, usually located in the

              usr/share/java folder.

              [link] is an additional link to the jar to install, usually there should

              be a link to usr/share/java/$jar.jar and usr/share/java/$jar-$version.jar to comply
              with the Java packaging guidelines. Note that there is no  need  to  specify  those
              particular links if the --java-lib option is used.


       -h --help: show this text

       -V --version: show the version

       -p<package> --package=<package>: name of the Debian package which

              will contain this jar file

       -e<version>, --set-version=<version>: set the version for the jar,

              do not use the version declared in the POM file.

       -r<rules> --rules=<rules>: path to the file containing the

              rules  to  apply  when  cleaning  the  POM.   Optional,  the  default  location  is

              version from the POM file.

       -l --java-lib: Optional, if given it will install the jar into

              /usr/share/java  to  comply  with  the  Debian Java specification.  The jar will be
              installed   as   /usr/share/java/$name-$version.jar   and   a   versionless    link
              /usr/share/java/$name.jar  will  point  to  it,  as  well as the links installed in

       -n<name> --usj-name=<name>: Optional, the name to use when installing the

              library in /usr/share/java when --java-lib is used.  Defaults to  the  artifact  id
              found in the POM.

       -j<version> --usj-version=<version>: Optional, the version to use when

              installing the library in /usr/share/java when --java-lib is used.  Defaults to the
              version found in the POM.

       -s --no-usj-versionless: Optional, don't install the versionless link

              in /usr/share/java.  This flag is used only when the -l  or  --java-lib  option  is

       -c<classifier> --classifier=<classifier>: Optional, the classifier for

              the jar. Empty by default.

       -v --verbose: show more information while running

       -n --no-act: don't actually do anything, just print the results

       --skip-clean-pom: don't clean the pom, assume that a previous action ran

              mh_cleanpom  with  the  correct  options.  mh_cleanpom  is  run only to extract the
              groupId, artifactId and version of the jar
