jh_generateorbitdir - Creates and populates an orbit dir used by
pde-build for third-party jar files.
jh_generateorbitdir [debhelperoptions] [--orbit-dir=dir]
jh_generateorbitdir is a javahelper program that handles creation of an
orbit dependency dir. This directory has to be populated with non-
eclipse jar files. However, eclipse refers to these jars by their
"symbolic name". jh_generateorbitdir can extract this name from the
jar's manifest (provided it has the OSGi metadata) and create a symlink
jh_generateorbitdir will replace regular files with symlinks if they
are present in the orbit dir and clash with the name of one of the
orbit jars. If an orbit jar name clashes with a symlink in the orbit
dir, then jh_generateorbitdir will assume that the given jar has
already been symlinked correctly. In this case the jar file is still
recorded in the cache (see below).
jh_generateorbitdir will also check the default installation for jar
files on Debian systems (at the time of writing /usr/share/java), if it
cannot find the jar in the current dir.
Jar files replaced by jh_generateorbitdir will be recorded so that
jh_installeclipse can replace with symlinks them post install.
List of orbit dependencies - one per line. This can be used as an
alternative to passing it per command line.
Specifies the directory from where the orbit-dir is or should be
created. Defauls to "debian/.eclipse_build/orbitdeps".
jh_generateorbitdir --orbit-dir orbit asm3 oro
Will generate a folder called orbit with two symlinks based on asm3 and
oro's symbolic name.
This program is a part of javahelper and uses debhelper as backend.
There are also tutorials in /usr/share/doc/javahelper.
