  To avoid this kind of duplicate work and in general find a named JAR
in the archive even when its name does not obviously correlate with the
name of an existing package, use apt-file:

~ apt-file update # to make sure we're up-to-date
~ apt-file search my-nice-jar.jar

  Most of the times, it will find the package with the JAR you're
looking for, or at least you'll be confident that you actually need to
package it.

  For the record, I use the following alias for apt-file:

~ which af
af: aliased to apt-file -c ~/.apt-file

  To work around the global cache problems (though I'm wondering if this
hasn't been fixed since I wrote this alias, ages ago).
