so eclipse is native in squeeze?

yes!  one version back from latest upstream, but yes, it's there:

I would not like to include non-free packages so I would go about installing openjdk6 as long as it is compatible with the nxjc packages. Will check the hook in detail though

you don't need the hook if you don't use sun java.  and installing eclipse will install openjdk because that is one of its dependencies.  so just add eclipse to your packages list and you should be fine.

worth giving it a try. thanks

you can just email 590049@bugs.debian.org expressing your interest in testing and asking for the status of the packaging effort.  that will get to the maintainer who is working on it.

so you think I can eliminate the interactive shell and manage everything through hooks? So i would need a hook for java (already mentioned) and another hook for nxjc right?

as i said, you don't need the hook for java if you use openjdk6.  and as for nxjc, so long as the maintainer has a .deb for you to try, you just need to put it in config/chroot_local-packages/ ... no hooks needed.

worst case scenario, you will need to do something else for nxjc because the package isn't ready yet, but let's cross that bridge when we get to it (i thought most java software was shipped in .zip archives that you could just unzip and point CLASSPATH at; is this no longer the case? *must* you always use gui installers?)
