If you want to host service for searching for classes (and other
things) then the following project may be interesting for you:


It is a web application where you can search for classes and manifest
headers of all JARs in particular OS version. There are plans to
extend it with other capabilities, such as searching for other things
(eg. pom.xml and pom.properties embedded in JARs) and analysing
dependencies between JAR files and distro packages.

Currently only rpm packages are supported, but it should be fairly
easy to add support for deb. It should even be possible to have a
single instance where you would be able to search in various deb- and
rpm-based distros.
