the JPackage team, which doing RPM packaging of java tools and apps,
has just asked you debian java list what's are some of your policies
to see if we could find some commons.
If you remember and take a look on mail archives, you'll discover
some of my mail to some Debian fellow on tomcat and jakarta list
about location of java jars. You'll see also that my RPM use
/usr/share/java for at least 18 months, at a time nobody even
spoke about packaging java.
Yes the question is not RPM/DEBIAN, but related to LSB, and that's
why we try to determine if we could find common policies ;)
