Dear Markus,

I send a copy of my answer on our public mailing list, because your
question is of general interest.

jemboss is currently not packaged in Debian, because we have
difficulties to handle java programs. If we want to support jemboss with
Sun's Java, we would have to depend on a package distributed by Debian
in its non-free section, and this would prevent us to distribute EMBOSS
in the main section. On the other hand, we have no experience with free
alternatives. Our current strategy is simple: wait that the free Sun
Java is packaged for Debian; this is under way but requires time for

If you have experience that could help us, please feel free to share it!

Have a nice day,
