With maven, you download some jar files located in a remote repository
(maven or other).
So, to build your package, you would download files from an other
location, not using debian libs, furthermore there is no control on
remote jar license, source availability etc...

I never tested it, but already had a look. If I am correct, the mvn
helper "translate" dependencies to Debian dependencies, but those
dependencies need to have a pom file (maven descriptor). And for those
not available in Debian, it won't solve the problem....
The script will create a local repository to be used by maven.
