Re: Best way to install Java JAR files (java packaging)

Dear list,

I must clarify and deliver footnotes here (sorry):

1-3 are really free (GPL or similar)

Rather free as "free beer", indeed:

1. http://geonext.uni-bayreuth.de/ 
2. http://www.geogebra.org
3. http://www.gnugeo.de/jfractionlab/jfractionlab.html
   (only partly localized AFAIK)
4. http://www.bluej.org/
5. http://www.swisseduc.ch/informatik/karatojava/javakara/index.html
   (German only?)
6. http://www.trix.homepage.t-online.de/JPrologEditor/

Tvbrowser.org and Freemind.sourceforge.net are further references.

The query for source-less deb-creation was thought for temporary/local 
usage (uers/non-DDs) to use all the advantages of deb-Packages.

If there is a way to create deb packages for private usage from JAR 
file, I'd volunteer to test and document it...
