Re: Best/recommended way to search if a Java library or class is packaged

I always use the following bash-based solution:

dpkg -l | grep java | awk '{ print $2 }' | xargs -I {} dpkg -L  {} | grep jar | xargs -I {} grep "javax.servlet.Servlet" {}

But I'm pretty sure there is much better tolling for such tasks...

Maybe we could revive this tool. If the source is available somewhere I
can host the service on my server.

I often use sources.debian.net with queries like 'class Foo' or 'package
org.bar' to locate the source package containing a class or a package.
