do you think we should change the java policy and relax the requirement to
install java libraries to /usr/share/java in favour of /usr/share/maven-repo?

At least I'd like to see a very strong recommends to install to /u/s/m-r. I
feel like having filled a dozen bugs against java libraries that did not honour
the debian maven repo but on which I depended.
I don't think we should add in our policy a strong dependency on a build
system and the paths it expects. It used to be ant, it is now Maven, it
might change in the future.

I would prefer to keep /usr/share/java. It is not tied to a specific tool.

I also support this: /usr/share/maven-repo is only an addition to /usr/share/java and not a replacement.

IIRC, Debian Java Policy actually require versionned JAR (ie. real file) to be installed into /usr/share/java and we should keep this.
