The bindings are independent from gstreamer. It depends only on jni
and swt jars and use ant as build system.
I searched for documentation on how to create debian packages for java
libraries but I'm a bit confused on which tools to choose
(CDBS/dh_make, quilt/dpatch, etc). Reading the New Maintainers' Guide,
it seems I could use dh_make and manually edit debian/rules to call
ant to build/install/clean, overriding almost all dh_* targets. Would
this be a good approach?
Is there any additional documentation that can help me?
