Re: The evils of /usr/share/java/repository
Because you're causing a big hassle for anybody writing a Java program,
even "hello world".
It is one thing to ask packagers to have to explicitly specify
dependencies, but it is
ridiculous to ask this of anybody who wants to program in Java for
internal use. We
Why not just put the jars in /usr/share/java, keep the system classpath
completely clean, and let the startup scripts for individual apps choose which
don't do this for C or C++.
