Hi Morten, I'm having a look at this now (sorry it took a while) and
there are a few problems with it.

Firstly, your debian/build.xml contains <property name="src.version"
value="1.1">, which is no longer a valid source version string (must be
at least 1.3). Given that it is not shipped with any sort of build
system upstream you might like to consider using javahelper's simple
build system, which doesn't require writing a build.xml. (it has cdbs
support if you prefer that, although I prefer debhelper 7).

You're also not following policy in the installation of the jar and
docs. Docs should be under ./usr/share/doc/libtggraphlayout-java/api/
and the jar should be installed to /usr/share/java/package-version.jar
with a simlink to /usr/share/java/package.jar. Again, javahelper can
make  all this simple. Have a look at the documentation in the
javahelper package for details. Documentation should also include a
doc-base entry, ideally include links to classpath-doc and recommend it.

Let me know when you've re-done the package and I'll be happy to look
over it again for you.
