It's been a long time I did not read d-d@l.d.o so I don't know the pros
and cons about cdbs.

With the ant class, it's really easy to package java libraries and
applications, just have a look at Alioth's project:


Here is the debian/rules file for libcommons-fileupload-java:

#!/usr/bin/make -f
# debian/rules for Commons Fileupload (uses CDBS)

include /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/debhelper.mk
include /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/ant.mk
include /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/simple-patchsys.mk

JAVA_HOME_DIRS       := /usr/lib/kaffe
ANT_HOME             := /usr/share/ant1.6
DEB_JARS             := servlet-2.3 /usr/share/ant1.6/lib/ant-launcher.jar
DEB_ANT_COMPILER     := jikes
