I do not have the slightest idea how this CLASSPATH information is
created (neither do I finally understand why those Java guys are
entertaining different spellings for the same thing (CLASSPATH versus
Class-Path).  The only file I'm providing is debian/beast-mcmc.manifest
which is probably / hopefully used by jh_manifest (triggered by
the use of javahelper).  I did some experiment by injecting a random
string and it was moved unchanged to the resulting MANIFEST.MF file.
However, as you can surely verify debian/beast-mcmc.manifest does
not contain any line breaks - just one line for Class-Path.

I do not have any idea how these line breaks will be inserted nor
whether they do really harm.  Could anybody from debian-java please
comment on this.  We are talking about the preliminary packages at


where I needed to inject explicite CLASSPATH in all wrapper scripts
because the information in MANIFEST.MF seems to be perfectly ignored.

I also do have another question to the Java experts:  We have quite
large data sets and faced situations where the setting


is not enough.  Is there any reasonable limit for this parameter?

Kind regards
